It's a very enlighting documentary with a lot of interesting sequences from pop history. It shows how musical influences work, how stilistic details are developed and how specific sound elements evolve. Also it gives insight into the different means of expression on the electric guitar e.g. by the way of using playing techniques or technology.
Jack White is one of the great eccentrics of our age. Page and the Edge are both brilliant in their own respect. Very interesting to see the incredibly different approaches that the three of them have on their instrument, but yet simultaneously sharing a mutual, universal love of music.
An intriguing look at the artistic process and a novel approach to the rock documentary, crafted with just the right amount of style by director Davis Guggenheim, all leading up to a very satisfying climactic jam session. A tremendously enjoyable documentary.
got my drulling over several guitars and riffs! and page's segments when he was younger were great. As a guitar player i loved every bit, but i understand that common mortals may find the documentary a little boring
I thought this was a great little film. Any rock lover will enjoy this immensely, and it's good to see a documentary that doesn't try to shove some agenda down your throat. It's just guitar players, passionate about their art, talking and playing. A gem.
TheAuteurs user "NU" nailed it when he said "It might get boring" as a title for his review. Easily one of the more aimless and pointless documentaries I've ever seen. Every time White or "The Edge" were on camera, I pleaded with Page to strangle them both, And will someone please tell White to stop dressing like a sepia photograph, please
