I just watched it. It was 2 and a half hours long, but it was worth every minute. The whole movie was centered on making Lars Ulrich look like the
(c) that he is. It was with no coincidence why the drumming wasn't up to par with the rest of the band. It was Lars' way of expressing himself.
Favorite part was when Kirk Hammet goes to Ulrich, "I'm used to the drummer keeping the beat." Now that cracked me up, after listening to St.Anger
and Some Kind of Monster albums; where the drumming on most of the songs was a nuisance. Also the clip with Ulrich, his father and the psychiatrist
also cracked me up.
There was also an audition of some weirdo from a perfect circle for the bassist position. Other auditions were also shown.
I'll definitely be getting the dvd when it comes out. It also addresed other issues from the band as to why Jason Newsted left the band, etc... I
would give it 5 stars, only because the drama was entertaining, and you got to see all band members talking throughout the whole documentary.
The documentary also helped the st.anger album. Before it sounded like (c), although it still does, it now has meaning.
