Excellent Real Life Documentary
20 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was in attendance for the first showing of Artifact at the Toronto Film Festival.I went with my son who is a huge 30 Seconds To Mars fan whereas I didn't really know them. The film accurately shows the struggle that many artists have in the music business.It follows the band 30 Seconds to Mars in a real life documentary which starts as a film about the making of their album into all out war with EMI.It allows the audience to see deep into the music business and will 'shock' all who see how corrupt things can be. It was deeply moving to see the effect this had on the artists. I have rated it 10/10 as it was excellent in every way. The only negative is the constant strong language which is understandable due to the stress they were under but would make it unsuitable for children. I voted for it at the TIFF and was really pleased it won the peoples choice. They deserved it. Well done boys.
