Over four decades, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has registered an immeasurable impact on music history. Nearly 65, he remains the living embodiment of the rock and roll lifestyle, and this feature-length documentary tells his story, one of a hard-living rock icon who continues to enjoy the life of a man half his age. Shot on a combination of High Definition and Super 16mm film, "Lemmy" includes interviews with friends, family, bandmates past and present and such admirers/peers as

This parade of admiration is almost as exhausting as the experience of a Motörhead concert
This 65-year-old gentleman with the distinctive facial hair and penchant for Nazi memorabilia is not only a certifiable rock god, he's also one of the most thoughtful fellas you'll ever find grinding our mega-decibels on a bass guitar.
Fun for fans and a healthy primer for those previously unaware, the film's overall air of fawning worship makes it feel softer than befits such a gruff, roguish figure.
A bitchingly awesome doc that suggests its fantastic title isn't even true.
For the most part, Olliver and Orshoski are smart enough to allow Lemmy's unique personality to come to them, as opposed to pushing a case for it.
One of the most thorough and entertaining rock & roll documentaries since Ondi Timoner's Dig!
Most rock stars probably wouldn't appreciate a documentary that exploits their personality for laughs, but the great thing about Lemmy is that he's in on the joke.
Enjoyable documentary that should appeal to metalheads and non-metalheads alike, with Lemmy proving an engaging and likeable subject...
