A mostly terrific documentary about a mostly terrible album. Despite derisory poor-me whining, it captures fragility and fear in Metallica's questioned relevancy, considered disbandment and the closest things to tears they can muster for each other.

Who else would give documentary filmmakers this kind of access to their lives? I'll tell you who: Anna Nicole Smith, and any of the has-beens from The Surreal Life.

[Shows] less 'the majesty of rock' ... than the banal yet ultimately far more inspirational reality of flawed human beings confronting their demons and getting down to (admittedly big money) business.
