Metallica – Some Kind of Monster Reviews

June 8, 2009

Metallica - Some Kind of Monster

With voyeuristic intensity, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster explores the intricate connections that are created, nurtured, and challenged between members of a long-lasting band. That this intimate odyssey of group therapy and self-discovery involves Metallica–the most successful heavy metal group of all time–is just one reason this film is so uniquely fascinating. Having proven their documentary skills with Brother’s Keeper and Paradise Lost (which included Metallica in its sound (more…)

Metal - A Headbanger's Journey

An anthropological study of Heavy Metal? Is this for real? Believe it man, it’s true, and it’s pretty darn good at that. Metal – A Headbanger’s Journey is a labor of love for director/ producer Sam Dunn; anthropologist, academia, metalhead. Like a good anthropologist Dunn has often wondered about cultures, societies, and the key elements that makes them thrive. Being a life-long headbanger, Sam Dunn decided to turn his academic skills onto himself to study and attempt to explain (more…)

Metallica – S & M with the San Francisco Symphony Reviews

May 27, 2009

Metallica - S & M with the San Francisco Symphony

There’s little doubt that this two-volume concert and documentary package will appeal to die-hard Metallica lovers–given its more than three-hour length (two and a half for the concert segment alone), the band’s predominantly white male fan base (repeatedly addressed as “man” by singer-guitarist James Hetfield) will be–in fact already are–ecstatic. But one wonders, especially given the erratic history of rock-cum-orchestra experiments, whether S&M will win Metallica any new af (more…)

Live Aid Reviews

Live Aid  (4 Disc Set)

Billed as “the day music changed history,” the Live Aid concerts of July 13, 1985, were held to raise money to fight the horrifying famines sweeping Africa. The brainchild of Bob Geldof and representing the efforts of countless musicians and technicians, Live Aid was a genuine and inspiring effort to help the victims of an overwhelming calamity. Twenty years after the twin concerts (one in London, one in Philadelphia) were broadcast worldwide, the 4-DVD treatment furthers the cause (more…)

Johnny Got His Gun (1971) Reviews

May 11, 2009

Johnny Got His Gun

Review
Johnny Got His Gun is one of the most emotionally devastating films you’re likely to see. You won’t soon forget it, and that’s either going to spur you on to some useful introspection or drive you a little mad. That’s the sign of masterful writing, and Trumbo’s singular achievement. –DVD Talk, April 17th 2009

A young American soldier (Timothy Bottoms) is wounded by a mortar shell on the last day of World War I. He lies in a hospital bed as a quadruple amputee who has (more…)
