Anvil! The Story of Anvil
Time Out says
Since the schedule takes them to a shed in Transylvania via sundry shoebox-scaled clubs, hilarious real-life absurdities pile up, yet the movie’s never scornful of the band’s hapless antics and constant in-fighting. Instead its seamless construction and alert observation allows us to take the punches with them, understanding that Lips’s undying devotion to rock has meant a lifetime of sacrifices and stress for his nearest and dearest, all of which only adds to the pressure to give it all up when fortunes take yet another nosedive. Frankly, the guy’s a hero in any musical language, and he deserves this heartfelt, emotive, supremely entertaining tribute. Anvil! We salute you!
