The other night, I was watching upcoming movie trailers on my phone and came across a handful of music-related films/ documentaries that really piqued my interest. So here they are:
'It Might Get Loud' is a documentary following a meeting between 3 generations of guitar virtuosos: Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White. Jimmy Page is a legend, but somewhat before my time, U2 just doesn't do it for me, but I'm excited to see Jack White in this film. And judging from this trailer alone, he seems to be the most interesting part of it.
'Taking Woodstock' is Ang Lee's (Brokeback, Crouching Tiger) inspired by a true story take on the events of August 1969 in Bethel, NY. Demitri Martin, Eugene Levy, and Emile Hirsch are among the stars of what looks to be like a pretty entertaining film.
'The Boat That Rocked' is another based on a true story film, directed by Richard Curtis. In The 1960's, before England's elite embraced the power of Rock 'n Roll, the only way to broadcast the music was from a soverign boat off the coast. Phillip Seymour Hoffman leads a cast of young British rebels who just want to rock.
