As long as they don't edit out the scene where the band beats the crap outta the napster guy, I'll be seeing it.

also, i noticed that the movie was released unrated. knowing how often they swear at live concerts, i am guessing this would be about an R, but is there anything worse then that.

It's just a typical rockumentary where they follow the band around for a while. playing at arclight. don't know how wide of a release it will be and I thought it was all Post Napster so most likely wont have any big amount of coverage on that.

I doubt Berlinger and Sinofsky would waste their time doing a typical "rockumentary".

I want to see this film. Yeah, I think its post-Napster too. I think it mostly covers things like the recording of St. Anger, Newsted leaving the band, Hetfield going into rehab, etc.

I might check this out. Hopefully they'll do some thing for Old School Metallica fans. Maybe some Whiplash.

is this a question or a statement, cause there isn't really anything objectionable in terms of content, R-rated language, but that's about it. I was surprised how quickly two hours and twenty minutes fly by, I was very impressed with this film.

actually forget what I just said, there are some quick flashes of female nudity at a couple of times, once during a montage. so.. if it were rated it would be an R for language and brief nudity. Sorry about that, after mulling it over a bit, I realized I wasn't recalling all.

Unrated movies are up to the theater as far as I know. So they might treat it as R-rated. If the theater has a automated ticketing machine, use that. The ushers/ticket takers usually don't say anything but the person working the ticket counter might ask for ID.

Some of you may know from the music forum that I'm a Metallica Super-fan, thus I'm biased. However, I would really recommend this documentary to anyone regardless of your feeling toward Metallica.

It's NOT your typical follow-the-band around rockumentary as someone earlier had posted, it's unlike any Documentary on a band that I've seen or heard of. Simply because of the direction the film took.

In brief, in 2001 it was going to be just a typical film, similar to the previous documentary call "A year and a half in the Life of Metallca" Basically going to document the recording of the new album.

Then shit hit the fan, tensions within the band forced Jason Newstead to leave, James went to rehab, the future of not only the band but it's members were in limbo.

Those weren't expected things, so the film took a hell of a turn, and became what you can see today.

It's f'n amazing. Loved it, probably more than a non-fan would, but it's well worth seeing if you are even the slightest bit interested.
