Metal: A Headbanger's Journey (4)
2005 documentary by Sam Dunn showing the world of metal music.
This documentary is amazing because you do not have to be a metal head in order to enjoy it. In fact, it is aimed more at people who are either interested in the genre or have no idea at all why anyone would like metal. It's like getting a birds eye view of that world.
I liked all the aspects of this movie. I liked how they showed different sides of the genre, from the music to the people and even the history of metal - the roots.
I thought it was cool that they combined interviews with live footage and personal backgrounds/opinions. They also showed the dark side of metal...which is a bit...strange.
Check it out if you enjoy music docs.
