Storyline

Actor, performer, and multi-platinum rock icon Meat Loaf reveals surprising shades of himself - and a fertile creative mind in constant flux - in this intimate and highly-entertaining theatrical feature documentary. The time is early 2007, one of the most stressful in Meat Loaf's career, when he is about to launch his most ambitious tour ever: an 18 month long marathon to support Bat Out of Hell III, the final album of the legendary "Bat" trilogy (first two albums had combined sales of over 55 million- two of the biggest selling albums of all time). His exhausting - and often poignant - journey takes him from Burbank, California through the first leg of his tour through Canada. Along the way, an unexpected media controversy erupts over the staging of one of his songs - a controversy that raises questions about his art, his age, his relevance - and brings into focus the drive (and demons) that have fueled his over-the-top stage persona for almost 40 years.

An intimate & revealing portrait of a rock legend...
19 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film recently and found it a very compelling, true portrait of an artist who is struggling to stay relevant in today's "flash-in-the-pan", youth-oriented music world. Though I was familiar with Meat Loaf's music going into the film (who isn't!?), I had no idea what a fascinating behind-the-scenes character he is! This film is a showcase for his passion, his demons, his triumphs, his struggles, and his relationships with his fellow band-mates. It feels very intimate and we are given access to Meat Loaf in all sorts of situations: during rehearsals and vocal practices, backstage and even on the road.

I think it's a film that is well worth watching, for Meat Loaf fans and those who are simply interested in getting a glimpse at the psyche of a major rock legend.
