It's the "Spinal Tap" of documentaries
14 May 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Saw this one at the NY Underground Film Fest; totally hilarious, weird ironic flick about these old Canadian guys who basically invented the noise-music genre. They've been pounding away for 35 years in London, Ontario, and suddenly discovered that they are a huge influence on guys like Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, and a whole crew of crazed Japanese noise musicians. (Yes, they are Big in Japan.)

One of them collects cockroaches and snakes, another is a doctor who performs acupuncture on the director's ear, 3 of them are artists, one is a librarian, and Bill, the whacked-out lead singer is a high-school teacher (now retired).

A film about a bunch of senior citizens who could deafen Metallica: is it real, or is it "Spinal Tap: The Documentary" ?
