RE: POSITIVE REVIEW OF UNDER GREAT WHITE NORTHERN LIGHTS

Ben Rayner from thestar.com has written up a very positive review of Under Great White Northern Lights:

"The White Stripes are, without exaggeration, one of the most feverishly intense and exciting live bands on the planet, so of course a concert film isn't going to do them complete justice.

Sometime video director Emmett Malloy's brisk, buoyant and often quite beautiful new documentary The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights comes pretty damn close to putting you in the thick of the sweaty action that went down in such unlikely spots as Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Iqaluit and Glace Bay during Jack and Meg White's 2007 tour of Canada.

So unhinged and in-the-red are some of the performances caught on film here, in fact, that the crowd that took in the picture's world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last September was applauding and noisily braying its approval as if it were taking in an actual show.

With the Stripes in limbo since Meg's anxiety problems prompted the cancellation of most of the tour that would have followed this Canadian jaunt that year, Under Great White Northern Lights is thus an easy sell to fans: This is all the music you're likely to get for awhile."

There's much more to this review, and you can find it all right here.
