Anvil! The Story of Anvil

From the Sundance Film Festival program:
"At 14, Toronto school friends Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, went on to become the "demigods of Canadian metal," releasing one of the heaviest albums in metal history, 1982's Metal on Metal. The album influenced a musical generation, including Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, that went on to sell millions of records. But Anvil's career took a different path - straight to obscurity.
Director Sacha Gervasi has concocted a wonderful and often hilarious account of Anvil's last-ditch quest for elusive fame and fortune. His ingenious filmmaking may first lead you to think this a mockumentary, but it isn't. Gervasi joined the legendary heavy-metal band as a roadie for a tour of Canadian hockey arenas, so he has intimate insight into the members' eccentricities. It's fascinating to see the reality of their day-to-day lives as they struggle to make ends meet, take a misguided European tour, and engage in antics on the road - which is not always lined with fans. Gervasi even finds a softer center to this raucous film, introducing us to band members' ever-supportive, but long-suffering, families. At its core, Anvil! The True Story of Anvil is a timeless tale of survival and the unadulterated passion it takes to follow your dream, year after year. Anvil rocks - it has no other choice."

Anyone go see this then? saw it last night in MK didn't look it up on internet girlfriend was quite shocked as was I that it was a documentary. Though it was excellent, lots of emotional male bounding and quite a few funny moments. Still made me go look up who Anvil are, is it real or all a mock up?

I really enjoyed it, but then again I'm a bit biased (I've been a metal fan for a long time). Was really impressed that the vocalists from Motorhead and Slayer, and Slash featured in the documentary. The preview sreening in London was really empty, and 6 people left at the beginning of the movie. Pity. :?

Metal on Metal :thumbsup:

Was bout 70% full at MK, was a lot of laughter one couple left half way through. I'm not really into heavy metal but I can appreciate it for what it is, more into the lighter stuff punk, emo, ska, rock.
