How I learned to love live...
22 August 2000 | by wierzbowskieSee all my reviews

This "Documentary" changed my way of looking at concerts on video. At first I thought they were all alike: boring two hour concerts where you can't hear what the dude says let alone what he sings. But with CUNNING STUNTS it was different. Metallica gave it their best on EVERY song and gave everyone, including me, a great live show (Even if it was on tape).

I love metal and this concert shows that metal still lives!!!
