The deep dive into the origin story is an illuminating breakdown of how [TS] succeeded in the rock business, amassing a cult following while rocking every bar and tavern on the suburban circuit throughout Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Using a trove of archival footage and memorabilia, the story is told by the band, managers and its devout fans over the course of 134 wildly entertaining minutes.
A comprehensive and sometimes harrowing portrayal of the grind a working bar band in the 1970s had to endure to get by.
Dee Snyder is charming and the movie is crammed with great archival footage of the band, ranging from their early days as a David Bowie cover act to their jamming onstage with Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead on British TV.
This persuasive paean to sheer bloody-minded persistence flies by over the course of 136 engrossing, often hilarious minutes.
It's all steak, no sizzle - the opposite of Twisted Sister.
If one sign of a great music documentary is to sway people who are apathetic toward the subject to care about it, then Andrew Horn's We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! probably fails.
Even if you're not a fan of the music or image, We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! is an inspirational testament to faith, courage and big hair.
It's a very entertaining yarn made all the more enjoyable by the fact the band's two leading members, guitarist Jay Jay French and his arch rival, lead singer Dee Snider, have a very well-developed sense of their own absolute ridiculousness.
Perhaps "We are Twisted F***ing Sister" doesn't satisfy in the expected manner, but it's a terrific summary of hard work and dedication to a dream, presenting casual fans with a PhD in SMF-ology.
