Under Great White Northern Lights review

A surprisingly different 'rockumentary' following The White Stripes on tour

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.
