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.

In the tradition of such seminal music documentaries as "Don't Look Back" and "Gimme Shelter," this seeks to transcend the conventions of the "rock 'n' roll movie" genre, trading rock-star posing for truthful introspection and revealing an intimate portrait of the individuals behind a legendary band.

'Trying to whittle down over 1600 hours of footage into a feature-length movie was an often heartbreaking task. We are thrilled that as part of the extensive special features on this 2-disc set, we were able to resurrect some of our favourite scenes that were so difficult to leave on the cutting room floor.' - Filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Joe Sinofsky.

I can recommend this even if you're not a big Metallica fan.

As an insight into what happens when a band gets bigger than it's boots - it's fascinating...
