White Stripes documentary Under the Great White Northern Lights premiered last weekend at the Toronto Film Festival to positive reviews.

In Under the Great White Northern Lights, Emmett Malloy has documented the White Stripes tour behind their 2007 album Icky Thump. During the band’s time in Canada, Jack and Meg White visited damn near every Great Northern province. Hence the title of the documentary.

During Malloy’s the Q & A at the Toronto Film Festival, Jack White came onstage and proved what I had already predicted; that Kanye West will be the butt of jokes for a very long time.
