Metallica: Some Kind of Monster

I want to see this one. USA Today reports on the new Metallica documentary: “The typical rock film puts these people on a pedestal and glorifies rock ‘n’ roll,” Berlinger says. “Our film is about the human wreckage that results from the incompleteness people feel when they are treated as icons. It demystifies the mythology of rock stars, and of this band in particular. If Metallica fans reject this movie, we’re in trouble. We’re stripping their heroes, the toughest of the tough guys, the guys who sing about Armageddon.” Documentary filming as free therapy, hmm? Nice to see that they’re trying to grow up. (IMDB entry.)
