The hysterically funny mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap is a movie about a British rock group that is rocketing to the bottom of the charts.
Marty DeBergi is a film-maker who decides to make a documentary about the world’s loudest band, the English heavy metal group Spinal Tap. The movie is in fact a biting satire and spoof of the whole rock and roll scene that passes itself off as a real documentary of a real band. Hilarious behind-the-scenes footage is combined with faux-concert clips to breathe life into the imaginary group.
This was the very first film to pretend to be a documentary in order to poke fun at the macho image of Rock’n’Roll. It was so successful that this “band” ended up performing live at many festivals due to the huge demand!
Smartly directed, brilliantly acted, and packed with endlessly quotable moments, This Is Spinal Tap is an all-time comedy classic and was voted by Rolling Stone as the best music film of all time!
