Documentary, Musical
This ingratiating documentary proves that most, if not all, the elements of This Is Spinal Tap exist in real life, as we drop in on the thirty-year-plus careers of guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner, head men of the Toronto thrash metal band Anvil. After almost making it big in the ‘80s, Lips and Robb persevere, running a gantlet of horrid European tours, soured record deals, inept managers, and the ignominy of minimum-wage day jobs — but they keep their sense of humor, and they never give up. Director Sacha Gervasi must be their biggest fan. They’ll probably grow on you, as well (80 min.).
