    Trailer

    At 14, Toronto school friends Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reinter made a pact to rock together forever. They meant it. Their band, Anvil, went on to become the "demigods of Canadian metal", releasing one of the heaviest albums in metal history, 1982's Metal on Meal. The album influenced a musical generation, including Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, that went on to sell millions of records. But Anvil's career took a different paty straight to obscurity. Director Sacha Gervasi has concocted a wonderful and often hilarious account of Anvil's last ditch quest for elusive fame and fortune. His ingenious filmmaking may first lead you to think this a mockumentary, but it isn't. Gervasi joined the legendary heavy metal band as a roadie for a tour of Candanian hockey arenas, so he has intimate insight into the members' eccentricities. It's fascinating to see the reality of their day-to-day lives as they struggle to make ends meet, take a misguided European tour, and engage in antics on the road, which is not always lined with fans. Gervasi even finds a softer center to this raucous film, introducing us to band members' ever-supportive but long-suffering families.moreless
