Metallica: Some Kind of Monster
- Theatrical - Limited 2005-01-25
Three years in the making, this new film from acclaimed documentary filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky (BROTHER’S KEEPER and PARADISE LOST) provides a fascinating, in-depth portrait of the most successful heavy metal band of all time, as they faced monumental personal and professional challenges while recording their first studio album of original songs in five years. In the tradition of such seminal music documentaries as DON’T LOOK BACK and GIMME SHELTER, METALLICA: SOME KIND OF MONSTER seeks to transcend the conventions of the “rock ‘n ’ roll movie” genre, trading rock-star posing for truthful introspection and revealing an
intimate portrait of the individuals behind a legendary band and their unique creative journey.
