coming soon to the modern

john nuckels from sub oslo and the modern art museum lives around the corner from me. tonight i saw him at the market and he said that the next selection of films in the museum's ongoing magnolia at the modern series should include soul power, the documentary of a 1974 music festival, headlined by james brown and b.b. king, that took place in kinshasa, zaire, concurrently with "the rumble in the jungle" between muhammad ali and george foreman. also under consideration for inclusion in the modern's series is it might get loud, a documentary on the electric guitar from the perspectives of the edge, jimmy page, and jack white. gotta keep an eye on the modern's website for these 'uns.

I hope they do show Soul Power. There was a great spot about it on NPR a few weeks back and the trailer looks damn solid.

Wow, I fucking hate Jack White and all his "pagerisms" but this looks really good. Didn't even hear about this one. Looks great. Jimmy Page looks dignified. The Edge looks...the same. Thanks for posting this.

Also Ken, when you get a chance when it comes out on DVD, you have to see Anvil The Movie. It is real and pure and heartbreaking. A true commitment (however trite) to Rock n Roll. One of the best docs I've seen in ages. Cheerio

Funny you mentioned It Might Get Loud as I heard Gary Cogill talk about it yesterday on the Ticket. Apparently both Sunday Bloody Sunday and Stairway's roots will be described in the flick.
