These are the kinds of moments that director Emmett Malloy, who shot the film in 16mm, seems most intent on capturing. While he doesn't always escape the Ghosts Of Rock Docs Past the image of Jack and Meg, nattily attired and posing next to a pair of matching prop planes, recalls scenes from Gimme Shelter in which Mick Jagger and co, decked out in rock star finery, enter and exit helicopters , the very nature of the Stripes' grand plan almost ensured ground would be broken.
Jack practically reduces his Montgomery Airline and Kay guitars to splinters as he pulverizes his audience with waves of untamed sound. That movie, however, imploded because of its wearisome, staged 'spontaneity' - the band discovering their American roots at Sun Studios, the boys soaking up the blues from BB King, Bono getting his gospel on with a Harlem church choir - that resulted in nothing more than flagrant self-deification.
Elaborate concert scenes that were meant to inspire awe came off as slick and studied; the big hit songs were dispensed with expert precision but without a sense of wonder. There was no danger, no risk of falling on one's face. The plan was to play a show in every province and territory in Canada, from B. What Northern Lights does best, is document one of the biggest bands in the world, playing to local crowds in small towns.
This forced a band that had been together for a decade to go back to a place reminiscent of the first shows they ever played together. For the first time in a long time, no one knew who they were and they had to make a first impression with their music. Barcode Published 10 years ago by whitestripes. Torrential Outpour Blues Live.
