Information and Film Reviews for Metallica: Some Kind of Monster the Movie

Staff rating

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Headbangers' "Let It Be" is a story of celebrity confession and, possibly, redemption. No Metallica career overview, concert showcases, or archival clips included. What you'll see is the psychoanalytically-assisted recording misadventure of St. Anger, a warts and all portrait exposing artist insecurity. Originally Elektra Records commissioned Bruce Sinofsy and Joe Belinger to create a film promoting the making of an album, but when talk of turning the footage into a half-hour reality series ensued, Metallica quickly reimbursed the $2 million to the label and added another $2.3 to have it completed.
