Some Kind of Monster, 2004


One of the all-time most revealing music docs, Some

Kind of Monster captured Metallica on the brink of implosion, as James Hetfield went to rehab, bassist Jason Newsted quit, and the remaining mem

bers met with a therapist to parse their difference­s. There are plenty of cringy moments (Lars Ulrich making peace

with a teary-eyed Dave Mustaine), but it’s also a document of how the

band saved itself.
