"facts" sometimes are just well-disguised lies
23 September 2007 | by henning-frickSee all my reviews

"The film is supposed to be a portrait of the lives of the people from Wacken, what they do for living and how they think about these five days when more than 60.000 (75.000 in 2007) long haired, evil looking "metalheadz" conquer their small untouched world. As I said, it is supposed to be...." (from the previous post) In my opinion this is a fundamental misunderstanding about the nature of movies in general and this precious piece of documentary especially. Did the director hold a press conference before the filming began, where she stated something along the lines of "my movie will be a portrait of the lives of the people from Wacken, what they do for a living and how they think..."? We must not confuse our own expectations with somebody else's supposed intentions. The very essence of every piece of art is its non-explicitness! This movie is so full of rich observations beyond the ordinary TV crap that probably would never have been possible had the director taken a more "investigative" approach, e.g. stalking people with "how do you feel about this and that" kind of questions. What the previous poster does not seem to be aware of: Sometimes not asking too eagerly might be the only way to get an honest answer.
