Metallica: Some Kind of Monster is the groundbreaking and critically acclaimed 2004 documentary that follows the band through three of the most turbulent years in their three decade-long career. Directed by the award-winning team of Joe Berlinger & Bruce Sinofsky, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster gives viewers an incredibly raw and intimate look into the lives and psyches of the members of one of the most successful rock bands in music history as they battle their way through addiction, domestic life, backlash from their fans, and near-total disintegration during the making of their St. Anger album.
This film includes Joe Berlinger’s bonus feature, Metallica: This Monster Lives, a brand new 25-minute short film commemorating the 10th anniversary of Some Kind of Monster. The new film takes us behind-the-scenes of the world premiere of the band's 3D hybrid concert film Metallica: Through The Never, including new interviews with the band and also with Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky as they reflect upon the legacy of Some Kind of Monster, its influence on the band and their experiences during the decade since its release.

Critics Consensus: Fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how Metallica survives one of their more turbulent periods.
Raw docu shows band at a low point; frequent cursing.
