Sundance Films: It Might Get Loud

Title: It Might Get Loud
Director: Davis Guggenheim
Potential Major Release Date: No set release date, but Sony Pictures Classics owns the distributions rights, so expect it in theaters nationwide

Summary: Davis Guggenheim, creator of the Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth, directs this fascinating profile of three contemporary guitarists: Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, U2's The Edge and Jack White of the White Stripes. Each talks about their creative process, technique and influences as cameras follow them to key locations in their own music history. A jam session featuring all three musicians is woven into their discussions (NetFlix).

Thoughts: Thank you Davis Guggenheim. Thank you for following up your great directorial work from An Inconvenient Truth with a documentary that truly caters to your style and strengths. If Guggenheim could make Al Gore at least moderately cool, imagine what he can do with the likes of Jack White, the Edge and Jimmy Page. I’m extremely excited for this documentary as I can’t imagine it being anything less then stellar.
