Directed by
Nimród Antal

Director Nimród Antal and cinematographer Gyula Pados superbly capture metal band Metallica in all their noisy majesty at a stadium gig somewhere in North America. Initially the film appears to be a superior take on the standard band-plays-live documentary format. But something seems off-kilter: why are no fans' cars parked outside the packed venue, and why does the band's runner, Trip, seem to disrupt any electronic devices he passes by? As guitarist/lead singer James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo get stuck into their opening number, Trip is told to get into a van and go and pick up something that the band need. The film then flicks back and forth between Metallica rocking the stadium and the unfortunate Trip, whose mysterious mission becomes ever more disturbing and violent as he ventures through the surreally apocalyptic events taking place outside the stadium.
