Fantastic documentary.
7 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Top-notch documentary on Ozzfest, the rock extravaganza produced by Sharon Osbourne, wife of legendary hard rock godfather Ozzy Osbourne. Directed by the gal who guided DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION PART 2, this film expertly intertwines concert footage with interviews and backstage drama. However, it is decidedly not for all tastes, due to heavy profanity and depiction of the lifestyles that surround the stars and fans.
