A documentary by the director who brought us Al Gore’s Powerpoint presentation… Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, White Stripes’ Jack White, and U2’s The Edge meet to chat guitars. If you are very interested in guitar construction and amplification hardware and if you do not mind listening to select samples of half-played classic solos, then this is quite entertaining. I just kept wondering: The Edge?? Don’t tell me they really wanted the Edge… this should have been Neil Young or Ry Cooder or somebody of that caliber. Jack White is perfectly fine as the rogue enthusiast. Edge is not one future generations will look back to admiringly, like they did wit Robert Johnson in the film, or actually with Jimmy Page? Anyway: I knid of liked it because I like the music, but don’t go for the documentary filmmaking values.
