Dav I.D.'s rating of the film Metal: A Headbanger's Journey

No matter what cries of distaste metalheads may produce (I'm a metalhead myself), this is a documentary on the genre that is far beyond sufficient. Keep in mind that interpretation has to be made as to what metal is limited to, when it started, and- what the hell is a subgenre anyway? The fact that such a well-researched film can communicate the overriding truths of the scene in barely over 1.5 hours is miraculous.
