I don't usually feel the need to write about films I've seen but this affected me so strong that I couldn't resist. A stunningly crafted portrayal of a group of people going through a tumultuous and transformative period in their lives. It's definitely not just a film for fans of Metallica and should be seen by anyone with an interest in documentary film or just film in general. Highly recommended.
