The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights

The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights


Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This documentary film follows the Whites Stripes, Jack and Meg White, as they tour Canada. They played the usual venues and also challenged themselves by playing in buses, bowling alleys and cafés. I've never liked concert films so I wasn't really looking forward to this one. They are always boring to me. I also didn't know anything about the White Stripes and didn't think I liked them either. The music, the talent and the filmography made me change my mind about both. It was extremely well done. Jack White is a musical genius and Meg White is awesome on the drums. Even if I didn't like their music, I could appreciate the amount of talent they have. Fortunately for me, I quickly became a fan.

You can see and feel the passion they have for the music and they really let go during their performances. The White Stripes are a bare bones, true rock and roll band. I couldn't resist the urge to dance. And by dancing, I mean I bobbed my head and tapped my feet a little. That's about all you can do in the tiny seats at the Paramount theater.

There is mystery surrounding the pair and this movie does little to answer any questions about the extroverted Jack White and the introverted Meg White and their relationship. It actually created more questions. I think it's better that way.
I recommend this movie to anyone who loves rock and roll. If you like the White Stripes, then all the better. I think this is definitely a movie worth watching at the theater.
