~~ Review Script ~~
This 97 minute film documents the various histories and playing styles of three distinguished and accomplished rock guitarists - as they come together for a single night to collaborate with one another and discuss their influences. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, The Edge Of U2, and Jack White of the White Stripes are these three influential guitarists - and even you're only a fan of one of them - this movie has something in store for all lovers of rock music. Casual fans and viewers will be delighted and educated on the amazing tapestries that make of these guitarist's lives and musical histories. For die-hard fans like myself however, there is very little information in the first half of the movie that was really new to me. It was still a treat to hear these classic biographies from the musicians themselves however. Guggenheim does a beautiful job of relating these stories to us through the eyes of some of rock's biggest names - all shot magnificently via an effective fly-on-the-wall technique. While seeing these legends in their elements, and hearing their insight into guitar-playing a true treat, the real heart of this film is central meeting of the three guitarists, dubbed "The Summit". The on-going fourth narrative piece holds the film together, and in the final act of the movie, when this "Summit" is given center-stage, the movie really shines. No longer are we seeing these musicians tell us about ours lives and history, we get a rare glimpse into seeing them share their skill and talent with each other. Watching The Edge explain the chord progression to U2's "I Will Follow", to Page and White, for example is a real delight. Sadly, this portion of the film is few and far between, and when the boys finally start to play a full song together, it's under the film's ending credits. A magnificent and inspiring film, but sadly - for a die-hard like myself, I definitely walked away wishing for much more footage of these guitar-greats interacting with one another.
