Nothing really happens. This leaves only the music, a stew of grungy dirges and Led Zep knockoffs I find strictly insufferable.

Some of the most subtly shot and well-recorded concert footage ever from a band not named the Rolling Stones.
Ed Gibbs
Empire Magazine Australasia
September 3, 2014
A lively document of a revolutionary band on tour in Canada - and a stark reminder of what a music documentary should do.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Documentarian Emmett Malloy is far more concerned with exposing the intimacies and insecurities at the heart of an enigmatic relationship.
Grant Rollings
The Sun (UK)
March 16, 2010
If you love The White Stripes, as I do, this is a must.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Terry Staunton
Radio Times
March 15, 2010
The live footage electrifies, filmed in either black and white or through a filter of the group's trademark red, with Malloy capturing the excitement of fans not used to seeing their heroes set up instruments on their very doorstep.

This is a stylish record of that tour and an insight into what motivates this quixotic pair of rockers.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Reel Film Reviews

Accessible to neophytes yet geared to fans...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 16, 2010
The most fascinating aspect of the film, though, is the way it intensifies the mystique of drummer Meg White.

Malloy mixes gorgeously grainy black-and-white and color footage of Jack and Meg White onstage and off; practically every shot in the movie could be blown up into a wall-sized poster.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Both film and band really come alive when the White Stripes get onstage.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
