In Search of Paradise portrays Meat Loaf as an obsessive, self-punishing performer, striving in vain to put on a live show that matches the visions in his head.
At once hagiographic and revealing, backstage docu Meat Loaf: In Search of Paradise follows the never-a-dull-moment rocker during Los Angeles rehearsals and an early 2007 Canadian tour.
You can't help but love the Loaf, and that spills over into most anything he does.
At age 59, Meat Loaf launches a worldwide tour for his album, Bat Out Of Hell III, with new stagings of some of his iconic songs. This fabulous rock doc is a first time look at Meat's grueling artistic process. It's amazing.
Watch this film only if you are a die hard Meatloaf fan and have seen everything else already. Best to watch with the sound off and with his Platinum album playing in the background.
The flick's signature shots are doors closing on Klein's camera. Meat Loaf is busy, he's sick, he's tired, he's in a confidential discussion. The excuses flow forth.

A surprisingly unvarnished picture of the performed emerges despite Klein's uncritical approach.
Much takes place offstage in 'Meat Loaf,' so there are few seconds wasted on the de rigueur ecstasy of audiences older than rockumentary adolescents.
