This is Spinal Tap goes to an 11

13 Dec


Hello Cleveland!

Director Rob Reiner, and actors Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer collaborate to make a monumental satire that is one of the funniest films ever. The matter of fact humor is throughout the film keeps the film moving consistently into one laugh after another, and by doing so, it allows the story to unfold and only adds to the characters becoming “rock stars” of the comedy world.  Most of the film was improvised, which has become Guest and co. trademark comedy style: Best in Show and The Mighty Wind.

The movie is filmed in documentary-style aka rockumentary aka mockumentary. It follows a 1982 U.S. concert tour of the fictitious Metal band Spinal Tap. It reveals all of the ups and downs the “music life” in a way that cements its’ scenes and dialogue in your head like lyrics to your favorite song.  This is Spinal Tap is a cult classic and it goes to an 11.
