Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Documentaries about disabilities don't come any smarter or more touching than "Mission to Lars," a beautiful sibling road trip tale with a heavy-metal flourish.
Fresh: It will not teach you very much about either autism or Metallica, but you will leave the theater smiling.
Rotten: In the particulars of a family quest film, viewers should see the universal. But in William Spicer and James Moore's documentary Mission to Lars, we instead get a whole lot of the specifics.
Fresh: The peripheral interviews with the extended Spicer family are as compelling as the central quest; this is a film with rare honesty and nuance in a field that frequently feels queasy.
A great journey!
Brilliant Doc which was made even better by having Metallica and Lars Ulrich in it...
