Anvil! The Story of Anvil

Even better than I hoped it would be. There are so many hilarious Spinal Tap worthy moments in here yet what really makes this movie special is how poignant it is. These guys have never given up on their dream no matter what sort of shit sandwich life throws their way.

The setbacks, the getting stiffed in European clubs, the Canadianness of it all. If Lips wasn't a real person, Christopher Guest would have had to have invented him. And I still can't get over that the drummer's name is Robb Reiner.

a fantastic film with more heart than most movies out there. it had it all - comedy, drama, heartbreak, struggle, triumph, horror and suspense. let's hear it for canadian stick-to-it-iveness.
