Das folgende ist keine offizielle News,oder ein Review von einer ZEitschrift sondern von einem Fan der den Film gesehen hat,dass er ihn gesehen hat ist aufgrund des detailgrades wohl klar,ist auf jeden Fall sehr interessant so weiß man mal wasa überhaupt im Film passiert,ich werd es gleichmal grob übersetzen!
What is some kind of monster? Well that an easy question, its a documentary on Metallica, and how they have evolved as a family. What is isn't is a concert, most of the footage is of the guys facing personal issues. Some of the footage is the same as the babble stuff and some of the stuff from some of the DVDs already out their. Some of it is some from the St. Anger DVD. That being said I have to give props to the 100.1 the buzz [local radio station] for the free tickets. Nice to save a couple of bucks now and then.
The first part of the movie talks about the loss of Jason and how the guys relate to it. Later we find out losing the orginal bassist is the root of the reason why they have so much trouble finding the correct bass for the band. Later the movie talks about Dave and how he still feels totally betrayed. How he feels everytime someone flashes the devil horns on the street they are kicking him when he is down. The fact of the matter is the pain is deep and Mustain has never truely healed.
Another scene shows Lars taking in a show with Bob Rock and breaking down with Jasons new band after he was kicked out of metallica. Lars breaks down in tears because he is lamenting that maybe he was kicked out for the wrong reasons, and maybe Hetfield won't come back to the band from rehab. He also is depressed at the thought he knows all thte stage hands, and they are all now not working for him.
What strikes one through out the scenes is how disfunctional and childish Lars and Hetfield are when it related to having their way with music. Lars in one scene is shown bitching about napster, but in the next he is almost pouting his loss of popularity among Metallica fans. Hammet is always the more submissive one, who would rather play the peace keeper, though its obvious Towle also plays the same role as the team shrink. Perhaps this portrayel proves he [Hammet] was the glue that has kept metallica together.
Also in the film is a wonderful example of how they have families. When Hetfield comes back from rehab we see him trying to focus his life. 4 hours a day on metallica, the rest on his loving family. We see his daughter in a touching scene doing ballet. We see her kiss her dad, and we see a lot of love. Hetfield is undergoing a transition of focusing more on the postives in his life. We also see in another scene Lars driving with his kid, and also in another he plays his drums.
We next see the demo process for the band bassist. Trujillo impresses them the most, but watching the footage of other would be bassists is equally interesting. Rob is offer a 1 million dollar up front bonus. However when he signs the contract he is still not an equal at its 35:35:35:5 division of payouts/responsibility [don't ask me why that adds up to 110%].
Finally we see the making of St. Anger. The dsicerning Metallica fan will notice many things other less observant fans may not. A lot of the lyrics they sing are not part of songs we know--and could be lyrics for future albums. We see a much more clear layout of the san fran HQ then previous videos nic posted. We also see more of san quentin then the babble videos or St. Anger. James gives a really motivational speech to the prisoners. Then the stage sets and we see the final product a sold out stadium going nuts over ectasy of gold.
If your a metallica fan I would highly reccomend seeing this if it passes through your city!
