Rory Brunner of U-Wire reviewed Metallica’s ‘Some Kind of Monster’ and spoke with documentary filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky about the project. “These guys are risk takers. Always have been, always will be,” Sinofsky said. “The very fact that they allowed us to make the film and would be willing to show their fan base, their millions of fans, warts and all, going through therapy, not being the tough, macho guys you’ve been seeing for the last 20 years. It takes incredible risk.” Berlinger added, “How much courage does it take to, first of all, tell your record label to fu** off in this age of declining record sales and downloading to say, ‘You know what, we don’t want this great promotional vehicle to sell records, we want to do what’s right for this project.’ B) To let it be filmed, to then pay for it, then to say, ‘You know what, we’re going to let these guys make the film that they want to make’ and we’re going to pay for it, and then to let it out the way it is.”
