It Might Get Loud is a magical documentary about the love of playing electric guitar, featuring Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin, The Edge from U2 and Jack White from White Stripes. They are three different-styled players, gathering to explain how they do, what they do.

What you learn by watching this extraordinary film is a sense of rock and roll history, from both a technical and visual perspective. Jimmy Page is a rare interview and when he explains how he created Whole Lotta Love, the moment just about jumps off the screen.

It Might Get Loud is created by Davis Guggenheim. He directed the Oscar-winning Al Gore film An Inconvenient Truth and is married in real-life to actress Elisabeth Shue. His latest film captures the passion of music in its rawest form. It's a film testament to the creative process, and a minor masterpiece.
