Jack White, Jimmy Page and The Edge in It Might Get Loud
In this unconventional yet thrilling music documentary, 'An Inconvenient Truth' director Davis Guggenheim talks to guitar legends (well, two guitar legends and one possibly future guitar legend) The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White about their backgrounds, their thoughts on guitars, their musical histories, their techniques.

That part's pretty interesting. There are vintage clips, for example, of Jimmy Page in an astonishing number of early bands, and interviews with The Edge as he visits the old school stage where he used to play with Bono, and footage of Jack White literally playing until his fingers bleed.

But then comes the fun part: The three guitarists meet up, do some reminiscing and some sharing of secrets, and then ... they play. Oh man, do they play. If you're any kind of fan of rock music, you will moan with pleasure at the sight (and sound) of these three virtuoso electric guitarists jamming to U2's 'I Will Follow' and Led Zeppelin's 'In My Time of Dying,' young and old learning from each other with curious, infectious delight and grinning like little boys all the while. The scenes, if you'll pardon the expression, are electric -- the best, most joyous live-music scenes you'll see all year -- and they'll make you want to run home and pick up a guitar, whether you know how to play or not.
