An experience that’s as wild as its subject, Lemmy takes us on a surreal ride through the life of a rock icon. Over four decades, Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has emerged as the undisputed godfather of heavy metal. Now in his mid-sixties, he remains the living embodiment of the rock n’ roll lifestyle—a Jack & Coke-drinking, Marlboro-smoking badass who rocks harder than men half his age. This is his incredible story, shot through with equal parts grit and intelligence, and featuring explosive Motörhead performances and an all-star slew of guests.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A diverting if hagiographic documentary with an unprintable subtitle.
Fresh: Fun for fans and a healthy primer for those previously unaware, the film's overall air of fawning worship makes it feel softer than befits such a gruff, roguish figure.
Fresh: Lemmy gives the filmmakers enough time and candid access to create a profile of the man that goes deeper than just the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll - even though in Lemmy's case, there's enough of a surplus of all three to power multiple documentaries.
Rotten: Devotees of Lemmy Kilmister will be in heaven watching this gushing love letter to the man who straddles rock subgenres, but anyone who's not already a fan will cry for mercy long before the nearly two-hour film ends.
Awesome movie! A definite must see for any Motorhead fan, but would also be entertaining for soon to be fans
One of the most candid and honest docs on music I have ever seem
LEM-MY ! LEM-MY! LEM-MY! \m/ \m/
Bought this one without hesitation - fitting tribute and profile of a heavy metal icon, this documentary shows Lemmy to be a down to earth working man's musician with a sly sense of humour and a great wit.
Worth checking out for the hardcore fan that's been listening to Motorhead since buying Iron Fist on vinyl in '82, to the newfound fan just getting into the band.
