Metallica: Some Kind of Monster is the groundbreaking and critically acclaimed 2004 documentary that follows the band through three of the most turbulent years in their three decade-long career. Directed by the award-winning team of Joe Berlinger & Bruce Sinofsky, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster gives viewers an incredibly raw and intimate look into the lives and psyches of the members of one of the most successful rock bands in music history as they battle their way through addiction, domestic life, backlash from their fans, and near-total disintegration during the making of their St. Anger album. This film includes Joe Berlinger’s bonus feature, Metallica: This Monster Lives, a brand new 25-minute short film commemorating the 10th anniversary of Some Kind of Monster. The new film takes us behind-the-scenes of the world premiere of the band's 3D hybrid concert film Metallica: Through The Never, including new interviews with the band and also with Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky as they reflect upon the legacy of Some Kind of Monster, its influence on the band and their experiences during the decade since its release.

    I’m not gonna rate it badly just because there’s no HD version as that would mean the documentary is bad. The documentary is fantastic. It’s honest, it’s emotional, it’s real. It deals with very real problems, problems that believe it or not, many people suffer from. Problems like alcoholism and its results. It’s an excellent documentary and a great movie. I already own it on Blu Ray but would love to have a copy to watch on my computer, which is why I’ll buy it the day it becomes available in HD, but not a day sooner.
  • HD Monster!!!

  • Great Movie!

    This explains why St. Anger was such a terrible album. You can't record an album when the band members are fighting like Metallica were.

    Not many bands have always beat to their own drum. This is a movie about a band in crisis and ten years later they are stronger than ever. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie the 3rd time seeing it as much i as i did the 1st time i saw it. Great honetsy. Tremendous band. Long live Metallica.
