Full Plot Details

Directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, SOME KIND OF MONSTER takes a shockingly in-depth look at Metallica, one of the world's most popular heavy metal bands. The documentary begins in 2001, just after longtime bassist Jason Newsted leaves the hugely popular group. Surprised by this sudden departure, the remaining band members, particularly singer/guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich, struggle to record an album without a permanent bass player, a situation that reopens many old wounds, including the loss of Newsted's predecessor, Cliff Burton, who died in a 1986 bus accident. The group even decides to hire a therapist, leading to a series of incredibly emotional confrontations and revelations. Berlinger and Sinosky's movie is unquestionably one of the most revealing rock documentaries ever made. Given almost unlimited access to tape the band during a crisis period of nearly three years, the filmmakers capture the members of Metallica both together and individually in remarkably intimate detail. Although the film features Metallica's music and includes vintage footage of the band's early days, it primarily focuses on the difficulties involved with recording the 2003 album ST. ANGER. The end result is not so much a film about Metallica, but a dramatic (and occasionally funny) portrait of a long-running band attempting to understand itself.

An intimate portrait of the band Metallica as they record for the first time in five years.

Movie Reviews

L.A. Weekly - 7.0/10 by Greg Burk Uncomfortable fun.
Boston Globe - 8.8/10 by Ty Burr If you've seen the Beatles documentary "Let It Be," you know what four men who are heartily sick of one another look like, and in 2001, Metallica had been recording twice as long as the Fab Four.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 7.5/10 by Bill White Berlinger and Sinofsky, with their knack for penetrating the diabolical pretensions of weak and disaffected human beings, have brought Metallica to its knees.
Portland Oregonian - 10.0/10 by Karen Karbo The miracle of Some Kind of Monster is Berlinger and Sinofsky's ability to make us root for these self-absorbed man-children.
Washington Post - 7.0/10 by Desson Thomson Documentary about rock history's biggest heavy metal band is -- variously -- serious, funny, frustrating and touching.
Los Angeles Times - 7.0/10 by Manohla Dargis By turns exasperating, appalling and surprisingly empathetic -- sometimes all in the same moment -- the three members of Metallica quickly emerge as the main attractions in Some Kind of Monster, but not for the reasons you might expect.
Baltimore Sun - 7.5/10 by Rashod D. Ollison You don't have to be a Metallica junkie to get this film.
Salon.com - 7.0/10 by Andrew O'Hehir Veers unpredictably between wrenching psychodrama and "Spinal Tap"-style mockumentary.
