Metallica vs. The Monster
Band Photo: Metallica (?)
ComingSoon.net talked to the band-singer James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett-about their lengthy career, their decision to make the movie and the effects the movie on their personal lives, including Hetfield's stint in rehab. This is a pretty good, legnthy interview with lots of insights into the band and movie. Here's a sample:
CS!: Can you talk a bit about the genesis of the film and how it came to be made?
Lars: Our relationship with Joe and Bruce goes back to Paradise Lost, where we gave them access to our catalog for their film. We've always talked about maybe working together one day, and in one of those roundabout kind of ways, this whole thing started happening. We had a 30-second handshake deal that went " Film whatever you want. When someone tells you to turn the cameras off, you turn them off. And when it's all said and done, we'll figure out what the f*ck to do with all this footage." That was literally the extent of it.
Kirk: The movie started out as a promotional film. As we were shooting, we had no idea that it would ever become a full-length documentary. It kind of just ended up that way. We had no idea it was heading in that direction, so we were just totally casual with it. I also think that's why it's so intimate and there's so much honesty.
