A must see eye-opener film
1 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Overwelming and a mind blower, Artifact The Film opens your eyes to the harsh reality of the music industry through the eyes of Jared Leto and his band, 30 Seconds to Mars. It is a must see for everyone, specially musicians, singers, producers and everyone involved in show business. This film is amazing, a roller-coaster of emotions that took me from laughter, to tears; from frustration to anger, to hope. It is such a respectable effort to say what has to be said about the actual music environment where technology has taking over and artists have to struggle in order to economically survive while trying to make their music. After watching, I respect the band and Mr. Leto even more for fighting so passionate for what is right, for standing up for what they believe in.
