It Might Get (Really Good And) Loud

Hey, it’s a perfect time to get into the theater for a change-of-pace documentary.  And “It Might Get Loud” fits the bill perfectly.

A look at the electric guitar and an exercise in collaboration between world-class guitarists Jimmy Page, Jack White, and U2’s The Edge, the reviews have been stellar. 

It Might Get Loud

Now open in a scant seven theaters in New York and Southern California, those fortunate enough to catch this production on the big screen will vouch for the reviews written up by such critics as A.O. Scott of the New York Times, Betsy Sharkey of the Los Angeles Times, and Entertainment Weekly’s Owen Gleiberman.

Should you exist on terra firma somewhere outside the entertainment bubble, fret not.  The full list of theaters and opening dates nationwide can be found here.

And be sure to check out the official trailer in the meantime.  It’s probably wise to set aside any feelings you may have about the recorded output of Messrs. Page, White, & Edge and just enjoy this movie for what it is.  As Scott points out:

…“It Might Get Loud” is more than a narrowly focused fan artifact. It gives us a chance to linger in the presence of serious artists with formidable chops and big, if not always clearly expressed, ideas about what they do. And it will put you in the mood to listen.
