An iconic rock mockumentary that follows the fictional British metal band Spinal Tap. With a healthy dose of parodic humour, the film follows the band as they struggle to get back on the charts, presenting the complicated history of these rock musicians through interviews and behind the scenes moments, highlighting the stereotypical moments of tours, performances and the promotors and groupies that surround them.
Post-screening discussion: Ramp the debate up to 11, picking apart the genre of rockumentary, concepts of the real, rock n roll lifestyles
and the appreciation of the legends that were Spinal Tap.
