Quotes

Himself - Guitarist: [Backstage after a show] Jason's making sandwiches to take back to the hotel, because he's too cheap to order room service. We're only going to make millions this year!
Himself - Bassist: It is because I'm a cheapskate, you're absolutely right, but we'll see who's laughing last. I've got plans for those millions and it ain't for fucking sandwiches!

The must-have documentary for Metallica fans
17 November 1999 | by fixxxer1013See all my reviews

I've seen all four hours of this thing at least 15 times. For Metallica fans, it doesn't get much better than this; you get to really know who these guys are and get to witness their particularly keen senses of humor.

Best bits: the constant ribbing of producer Bob Rock, watching James record the bridge solo for "Wherever I May Roam," the backstage visit from Spinal Tap, and James' session of Axl Rose ridicule.

Metallica fans MUST see this film; it is an indispensable document of the making of one of the greatest albums of all time and of the 3-year long tour that followed. Good stuff.
