This film from acclaimed documentary filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky provides a fascinating portrait of the most successful heavy metal band of all time, as they faced monumental personal and professional challenges while recording their first studio album of original songs in five years. The film is an intensely intimate look at one of the biggest rock bands of all time - the band have sold over 90 million albums worldwide. 'Metallica - Some Kind of Monster' takes you inside the studio and into the psyches of Metallica, as they record their Grammy-winning album 'St. Anger'. Over the course of two and a half years, the band - James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo - battle their way through communication breakdowns, addictions, a band member's defection, fatherhood, domestic chaos and near-total disintegration during the most turbulent period of their 20-year history.

I found this film to be very insightful, especially being a musician myself, it was great to see the inner workings of a world famous band. If you've any interest in music then it's defo worth a watch

Escapes me how you could find this interesting if you weren't a fan unless you enjoy listening to California types talking on and on about nothing.
