This hilarious and heartbreaking film has a 98% on RottenTomatoes.com and has been called "The best rock n' roll movie ever made" by The London Times.
...And we're playing it at The Ritz on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday this week. Witness the supernova when True Metal and True Dedication collide. This doc is being unanimously touted as pure, complete entertainment.
ABOUT THE FILM: Metal never dies. At fourteen years old, best friends Lips and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever. Their band Anvil, hailed as the 'demi-gods of Canadian metal,' influenced a musical generation including Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. Though Anvil never exactly made it, they never stopped playing or believing. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their thirteenth album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dream. This is the music doc to end them all. DO. NOT. MISS.
"Lips and Reiner endear because they operate in a bubble in which time and good sense have stopped. Passion, perseverance, rejection, humiliation, frustration — these are the age-old themes of the struggling artist, and the movie explores them with unflinching honesty." - Chris Garcia, Austin-American Statesman
