There’s more than meets the eye within Emmett Malloy’s ‘rockumentary’.
First impressions suggest it’s a tour movie with a difference, plotting The White Stripes’ 10th anniversary Canadian jaunt in ’07.
Jack and Meg bring Deep South revisionism to Northern provinces and venues and Malloy’s lo-fi style spotlights the gigs’ intuitive intensity.
The dynamic between the faux-siblings fascinates most, though, quietly speaking volumes. Note that Meg had to cancel all subsequent tours and the close will subtly slay you.
Viscerally thrilling and a vivid psychodrama on the sly: just like The White Stripes themselves, then.
