Davis Guggenheim

Davis Guggenheim's It Might Get Loud (2008) is notable for its intimate access to its subjects, rock guitarists Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White (top still, during their elegantly lit and shot "summit" session). All three musicians come across as well-rounded, deeply thoughtful, and hugely likeable. Page, especially, steps out of his dour and uncommunicative public persona to reveal an appreciative listener who is still totally engaged in musical exploration. Above, what has to be the most charming air guitar footage ever presented: Jimmy Page channeling Link Wray's Rumble and Muddy Waters's I Can't Be Satisfied.
