METALLICA: SOME KIND OF MONSTER (2004)
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster requires no affinity for heavy metal music to appreciate the many pleasures of this documentary classic. Oscar-nominated filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky (Paradise Lost) follow the members of the band over several years as they engage in group therapy. Reviewing the film for the New York Times, A.O. Scott wrote, “you are witnessing a psychodrama of novelistic intricacy and epic scope” that occasionally veers into the comedy of This is Spinal Tap.
