Descripción del producto
Imprescindible clásico de culto de los documentales rock. La parodia definitiva sobre la desastrosa gira americana de una falsa banda en decadencia, la banda de rock más ruidosa de la historia, el grupo de Heavy Metal “Spinal Tap”. Hilarante propuesta del director Rob Reiner, protagonizada por los cómicos cine-televisivos y amantes del hard rock: Michael McKean, Christopher Guest y Harry Shearer. Un homenaje a todos los estereotipos de la industria musical de la época, esta inolvidable parodia continúa sin defraudar a lo largo de los años a todos los amantes del rock y el heavy metal con sentido del humor. Un rockumental en toda regla.

YES-we thought "Spinal Tap" was a real band, and unfortunately none of us had yet grasped the idea of satire and irony--the jokes flew over our baked heads.
Well better late than never---this is now officially one of my favorite movies of all time, I am obsessed with Christopher Guest and have a list of all the movies he had done since--(best in show ect...)
I love how TIST -nearly 40 years later is just as relevant and current as it is. Watching the band on their "comeback" tour performing as a second act at a puppet show-or simply to a measly and uninterested audience is painful-and side splitting, I could go on and on-but I basically suggest that you watch it yourself-don't wait decades like I did--this was the perfect remedy to boring bedrest!!!
This is an almost perfectly executed movie in what it's trying to do. It's basically making fun of the hard rock and metal scenes of the time. And it's just an utter joy to watch front to back.
And in spite of the movie being a parody, the music is surprisingly good. It doesn't take itself seriously, but it is fun to listen to, and is something you might be humming to yourself later.
The movie itself basically follows a hard rock band during a downswing in their careers, as they tour across the United States in support of a much maligned new record they are releasing. Disasters befall them at just about every stop, and the band attempts to work past the many obstacles they face during this time.
For anyone who is a fan of rock music, comedies, or just likes well made films, this is an easy recommend. And also an easy recommend to anyone even slightly curious to check it out. It really is just that good.
Everything about it is fantastic, from the improv-type scenes to the cameos to the music (written by the cast). Spinal Tap casts a massive shadow among musicians and metal fans everywhere. It's pretty much required viewing or you lose your membership card to the cool kid club.
It's also one of the most quotable films of all time, with several lines becoming part of rock culture legend.
Most people have seen this, some many times. But if you haven't, get it together and watch it. Now.
There is not a full script to This Is Spinal Tap. There was just a general outline to the film. The actors created their own lines on the spot. Hilarity ensued. I mean, if you cant' have fun putting a tiny Stonehenge in front of a bunch of actors and seeing how they react, you're just not trying.
The whole thing is just perfectly made. It's just far and away one of the funniest movies ever made. It actually looks and feels like a real documentary.
If you can get your hands on the DVD I HIGHLY recommend watching that version because it includes a full length audio commentary. The audio commentary is just as good as the movie. It's done with the original actors reprising their roles as Spinal Tap watching the 1982 documentary 15-20 years later and ad libing their lines again discussing what's happened since the documentary was made. It's BY FAR the funniest audio commentary ever made on any DVD in the history of forever.
The film is hosted by director Marti DeBergi, played to perfection by Rob Reiner, and follows the career of the legendary rock group "Spinal Tap" as they come apart at the seams during their "Smell the Glove" tour. The core of the band are David St. Hubbins ("he was the Patron Saint of Quality Footwear" and is played by Michael McKean,) Nigel Tufnel (who plays his lead guitar with a violin and is played by Christopher Guest,) and Derek Smalls (who is taunted by a cucumber and an onstage pod, and is played by Harry Shearer.) These three along with Reiner wrote the songs for the film, and, yes, Tap does play their own instruments.
The film skewers every part of the pop music business through wonderful period flashbacks and hysterical situations that unfold during the course of the tour. The tour is a disaster, ranging from a Stonehenge triptych that is "in danger of being crushed by a dwarf," the perpetual loss of drummers ("he died in a bizarre gardening accident," "he choked on vomit...someone else's vomit actually...there's no real way to dust for vomit...,") to the resignation of the band's longtime manager Ian Faith (wonderfully played by Tony Hendra) with managerial duties being picked up by David's loathsome girlfriend Jeanine Pettibone, who "dresses like an Australian's nightmare." The film also features great cameos from luminaries such as Billy Crystal ("mime is money,") Bruno Kirby ("Spinal Pap,") and Howard Hesseman as rock star Duke Fame ("I'd love to stay and talk, but I have to go sit in the lobby and wait for the limo.")
The plot thickens when things unravel at a gig on an Air Force base, and "Spinal Tap, Mark II" briefly appears in a free-form jazz odyssey at an amusement park ("Derek Smalls on bass...he wrote this..."): the marquee reads "Puppet Show and Spinal Tap"...but at least their dressing rooms are bigger than the puppet's. An eventual tour of Japan resolves a number of plot loose ends, although they do lose another drummer in a mysterious green explosion.
In sum: this is the perfect movie. It became my favorite the first time I saw it on the big screen, and through many, many subsequent viewings it has managed to retain that status. If you enjoy sly and satirical humor, this movie is not to be missed, but be forewarned: you will not absorb all the jokes the first time, so mentally prepare yourself for the repeat viewings that will surely follow.
