The White Stripes - Under Great White Northern Lights

I've never been a huge White Stripes fan. I have all the respect in the world for Jack White and his music, but have simply never fallen head-over-heels for the band. However, Under Great White Northern Lights, a documentary following the Stripes' 2007 tour, might be the moment where die-hard fans, Johnny-come-lately's and ambivalent folks like myself can all come together to enjoy the Detroit rocker's celebrated fuzzed-out blues. The film is directed by Emmet Malloy, who along with his brother Chris, artfully directed the Jack Johnson surf film Thicker Than Water as well as the so-bad-it's-good Zach Galifinakis snowboard flick Out Cold. The film, along with an accompanying (and first ever) live album, will be out on March 16th. You can preorder both now over at WhiteStripes.com.
