Overview

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster

Award-winning filmmakers Bruce Sinofsky and Joe Berlinger (of the Paradise Lost films on HBO) direct Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, a documentary about rock stars in therapy. After 20 years of heavy metal, a few members of Metallica decide to hire psychologist Phil Towle to work out some group tensions during the making of their album St. Anger. Most of the therapy sessions involve drummer Lars Ulrich and singer/guitarist James Hetfield, with some input from guitarist Kirk Hammett. Also included are former band members Dave Mustaine of Megadeth and ex-bassist Jason Newsted. The band works through difficulties in group dynamics, personal demons, and relationship issues. The film shows recording sessions as well as therapy sessions, including the recruitment of bassist Robert Trujillo. The much-publicized controversies of Internet file-sharing and Hetfield's drug rehabilitation are also discussed. In 2003, Metallica released the album St. Anger on Elektra Records. Metallica: Some Kind of Monster was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004 as part of the American Spectrum competition.

metallica use to be good in the 80s but now they are old and washed up and they no longer care about the fans or the music in general all lars and james ever do in this whole entire movie is whine at each other bricker at each other after 1991s black album metallica alienated their fans just by releasing that album as for megadeth they are the true next led zeppelin metallica is well the next britney spears lady gaga or backstreet boys with guitars

This film was amazing! The most intimate look at a band ever. I was blown away with the access Berlinger and Sinofsky were given. I loved their Paradise Lost films- this one is better. You don't have to love Metallica to love this film.

Fascinating look into the psyche of heavy metal royalty. Made me feel like I was right at home. Extraordinary people with ordinary problems. Funny, sad, angry, a down and dirty look at the dynamics of the band. I loved it!
