A documentary crew followed Metallica for the better part of 2001-2003, a time of tension and release for the rock band, as they recorded their album St. Anger, fought bitterly, and sought the counsel of their on-call shrink.
A live Metallica concert backed by a 80 piece symphony orchestra, conducted by Michael Kamen. Two songs are debuted, "- Human" and "No Leaf Clover". A documentary is included. It also was released on audio CD.
The film's title "Through the Never" is named after the seventh track on Metallica's 1991 "black album". However, it is never performed in the film. See more »
When Trip has found the bag, he opens it to find out what is inside. A few moments later, when he tries to run from the angry mob, the bag is still open. In the next shot, running towards the high fence, the bag is closed. It would have been impossible for him to close the bag while running. See more »

Metallica plays during the entire end credits. Images of Metallica playing in an empty arena alternate with the credits. After a while, Trip enters the arena to watch them play. See more »
It's a concert film, it's not a movie. Metallica fans or anyone that has ever taken acid will relate to the cut scenes and the metaphors within the journey of Trip the roadie, as ridiculous as they are.
To anyone else, it's pointless, over the top & completely rudderless, but to the hardcore, lifelong fans who revel in the spectacular. It's too short, not loud enough and not a moment too soon.
The first review in IMDb is from "ssp113" he called it the worst "film" he'd ever see. I use my real name on this site, but I've got a feeling his real name might be Dave Mustaine? Ego's..............don't make me laugh, it's METALLICA BABY!!!
