Anvil! The Story of Anvil
2009
Formed by two 14-year-olds in the 1970s, heavy metal band Anvil influenced other acts, such as Anthrax and Metallica. This documentary joins Anvil's now middle-aged founders as they cope with obsoleteness and try to end their careers on a high note.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Apt comparisons to This is Spinal Tap! can be made of this documentary about a hard-luck Canadian metal band. But by the end, it becomes something unexpected: A moving portrait of two lifelong friends who need each other, and of artists staying true to their principles, however tacky their music may be.
