This is a list of every rock music documentary that I have come across. I also threw in some other…
It Might Get Loud
A documentary on the electric guitar from the point of view of three significant rock musicians: the Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White.
I kind of wish the film had just focused on Jack White. I found him to be the most interesting of the three.
While I would have liked to see a bit more of these three rock legends interacting, "It Might Get Loud" is still an essential documentary for all music fans, as it explores what three guitarists of drastically different backgrounds bring to their craft.
Grandioso documental lleno de momentos sencillos pero emotivos:
-Jimmy Page mostrando su colección de discos. Cuando pone "Rumble" lo vemos emocionarse cual niño pequeño descubriendo algo excitante y prohibido.
-Jack White creando una guitarra con cosas como tablas y una botella de coca-cola. Es un maldito.
-The Edge mostrando las primeras maquetas de Where The Streets Have No Name. El potencial en bruto que ya sabemos se convertirá en maravillosa creación.
-Por supuesto, ver cómo The Edge y White observan admirados a Jimmy Page, como queriendo adivinar los trucos de un misterioso mago.
I just want to quote, quote, quote, so I will.
"Want to figure out how you play guitar, what your niche will be? You just start digging deeper. When you're digging deeper in rock n' roll, well, you're on a freight train heading straight for the blues... 1930's, really scary version of the blues: minor key, anti-establishment, questioning themselves, painful. There's a tension in that music that you can feel. It just feels like there's this place wherein my soul rests and those guys were expressing it." --Jack White
"Fifteen minute guitar solos. Fifteen minute organ solos or the drum solos. There was this huge element of self indulgence. Professional rock musicians who looked down upon their fans. Those old…
I could do without Edge or Jack White. I'll make a directors cut with just Jimmy Page footage.
Three of the greatest guitarists that have ever played talk about the impact of the electric guitar on modern culture , Brilliant music documentry with great insight from The Edge , Jimmy Page and Jack White
This documentary is about 3 guitarists and their guitars.
Jack White, frontman of The White Stripes became the main reason why I watched this film. He loves to play shitty guitars out of plastic or build a guitar out of some pieces of wood and a bottle and learn to master it. It's a cool mentality and it's fun to hear him talk.
Just seeing these 3 guitarists talk about guitars and music was interesting and obviously you get a lot of good music to listen to. I liked it.
Interesting and entertaining- it's loose narrative structure helped and hurt it...
Doku mit und über The Edge, Jimmy Page und Jack White
It features The Edge so guaranteed watch by me. But it's very much not a U2 documentary. It's a guitar and music focused doc.
Need to rewatch.
Jack White = genius rocker, producer, musician, and 21st Century thinker with a 20th Century soul
the pissbaby scale
the edge > page > white
This is my favourite music documentary with the legendary Jimmy Paige from Led Zeppelin, Jack White and The Edge from U2. It doesn't get much better than that. It explores the musicians love for guitars and is truly amazing when you see these artists together in one room. If you like guitars and like this type of music watch this.
Before watching this film I had set the bar pretty high considering the spectacular men this film featured... Let's just say for a film with Jack White, Jimmy Page, and the Edge, I wasn't disappointed. THAT is saying something.
