Mini-review XI: Rock School

Movie: Rock School (Not to be confused with Jack Black's School of Rock, which was funny but fictional.)

Recommended? Highly.

Comments: First of all, any documentary featuring a 12-year old who can play guitar way better than I can is okay in my book. But really this movie is about a demanding music teacher teaching uniquely talented kids how to play music—not just any music, but rock and roll. And not just playing it in a garage—actually going to clubs and international festivals and performing it! If you can stand a lot of rock and roll swearing, definitely check this movie out. It's a fascinating film with great characters and enjoyable concert footage.
