|Metallica: Through the Never
|This Screening is part of event: FantasticFest 2013
My last movie of the night was this concert film which most non-Metallica fans hoped had a lot of narrative in it. It didn't. it was basically a music video's worth of story in between performances. I mean it's a bit more than that... but mostly it's concert footage and what little narrative present is pretty hilarious.
Let's see. Well I sat next to a big Metallica fan so that helped, and they had it loud as shit to where you could feel the bass rumble the floor so that helped. And the movie wasn't terrible. I got the sense that Metallica fans liked it.
One dude started headbanging and freaking out when they played his favorite song. It was hilarious to see him sitting next to a completely still Nacho...
I feel like I would've rather had another Metallica documentary but this wasn't terrible. I mean if it was a band I liked I would've loved it.
The Q&A was great though. Kirk Hammett talked horror movies, Robert Trujilo made some jokes, and Tim was a great moderator. The last question of the night was classic:
Q: What's Lars doing tonight?
A (Kirk): Probably as much as he can, man.
