Time Out says
We watch as the group frustrate themselves by failing to produce any decent music. Then, their bassist Jim Hetfield decides to disappear for a while to sort out some of the problems that earned the group the nickname ‘Alcoholica’. If we could see the faces of the filmmakers during all this, they would surely be looking very, very smug indeed. It’s a fantastic portrait of a band in freefall, refreshingly honest and, at points, like witnessing a car crash. You just can’t help but watch.
