Anvil! The Story of Anvil review

Posted : 5 years, 3 months ago on 16 September 2013 04:53

This movie is about dreams and failure and getting back up and dreaming some more, all accompanied by heavy metal. It made me cry, it made me laugh manically and it made me happy. It’s about having the courage to dream.

Really, watch this here thing. It will make you feel good.

A good movie

The main reason why I wanted to watch this flick was because it was included in the awesome list ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’. Eventually, this movie would be added in the 2010 version of this book and would be swiftly removed only a few years later but it was still worth a look nonetheless. Anyway, first of all, nowadays, I don't listen much to this kind of music but when I was a kid, hard-rock was definitely my favorite genre so I'm always kind of nostalgic about this music. Concerning the movie itself, it was definitely a cautionary tale for anyone who would like to become a professional musician. I mean, those guys from Anvil, even if you don't like metal at all, were actually very good and, still, they didn't make it after all. It is a good example showing how 1000s of other music acts are struggling every day to make ends meet and it shows also how ruthless and worthless the music industry actually is. A part from that, I just loved the guy playing in this band and, even though they never really made it, they still managed to create this awesome friendship which still stands nowadays. To conclude, even if it was maybe nothing really ground-breaking,  it was still an inspiring and touching documentary and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in movies about music.
