Air Guitar Nation ★★★ 2006 (R)

Suit up, grab your guitars…wait, you don't need them. First time director (and reality TV vet) Lipsitz follows rivals David “C. Diddy” Jung and Dan “Bjorn Turoque” Crane as they air guitar-battle their way from American competitions to the World Championships in Finland. Lipsitz doesn't push many boundaries with her direction or narrative, but still manages to create a film that's often hilarious without making its subjects the butt of the joke. 81m/C DVD. USD: Alexandra Lipsitz; C: Anthony Sacco; M: Dan Crane.
