If you’ve been following this site early on, you know how much I loved the movie “It Might Get Loud“. I was fortunate enough to see it in a theatre (granted it was sort of a crappy theatre). I went to the movie by myself, and I was completely blown away by what I saw, heard and felt. I remember it stayed with me for a long time. This movie is suppose to be a “documentary about the electric guitar from the point of three significant rock musicians”. I would definitely disagree. Sure it was about guitars, but to me, it was really about showing passion. Passion to ‘create’, and the tool just happened to be a electric guitar. I thought it was interesting how they related to each other, I thought it was interesting how I related to them. Great movie.
Well, I wanted my wife to see the film so we rented the DVD the other night, and she was absolutely blown away as well. I also thought I enjoyed it even more the second time around. I think every guitarist on the planet should watch this movie.. it is quite inspirational. But if you’re a fan of documentaries this is great regardless of playing a instrument or not. Passion is infectious and inspirational.
The DVD also has some bonus features, and we watched a few of the deleted scenes,etc. But there is a great press conference where the producers, directors and the three musician’s get to answer some interesting questions and provide further insight to the film.
