Metallica: Some Kind of Monster ★★★ 2004

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 psychoanalyticallyassisted record ing 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 halfhour reality series ensued, Metallica quickly reimbursed the $2 million to the label and added another $2.3 to have it completed. 140m/C DVD . James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo, Jason Newsted, Dave Mustaine, Bob Rock, Phil Towle; D: Joe Berlinger, Bruce Sinofsky; C: Robert Richman. Ind. Spirit ‘05: Feature Doc.
