Anyone with a passing interest in rock music has spontaneously busted into air guitar at some point in their lives. Don’t deny what you know is true, my friend. Director Ari Gold’s like-minded comedy “Adventures of Power” is, perhaps, the first of its kind: a film devoted to the awe-inspiring, all-American pastime known as “air drumming.” How anyone could base an entire motion picture around this goofy concept is beyond me, though Ari — not to be confused with Jeremy Piven’s character on “Entourage” — seems to have done an admirable job. These opinions, of course, are based on the trailer posted below. The finished product could be the equivalent of the stuff currently stuck to the bottom of your overpriced shoes. You never can tell.
Synopsis, if case you care:
Adventures of Power is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed “air drummer” of his small town. But when Power’s union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power’s journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town’s greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart.
“Adventures of Power” will find its way into New York theaters on October 9th. After that, you can catch it in Los Angeles on October 16th. Beyond that, I’m not sure.
