...Which is good of course. I want to start this review by rhetorically asking why most of the people reviewing this dvd feel the need to plug their love for this band. This site is for commerce and reviewing, so go to a chat room or something because I dont want to hear it. This review is for all you buyers who are thinking; "shut up you absolute wino pirate, I want to know if it's any good, not why some radish who I don't even know loves the band so much."
So, the direction for this dvd is astonishing, It's all shot on Super-8 home video camera which gives that magnificent grainy look. I read that the film reels in the cameras are so short they run out in like 3 minutes or something, so they had to set 9 or so up to take shots of the band at diferent times throughout the concert, whilst other cameras were reloaded with film! Sounds like lots of hard work to me but it really pays off.
What follows is a stomping, swaggering, electrifying performance that should, but NEVER, feels like a rock cliche`. Jack White donning his guitar like a super-Jimmy Page, and Meg White Smashing all hell out of her drums in a crazy thuderous racket, makes for one of the most awe inspiring live sets I've witnessed. All from your sofa.
So buy this, put on your white makeup, don't wash your hair, turn the surround sound up to full power and enjoy something magical.
