AllMusic Review by

Documentary film Angels with Dirty Faces dug deep into the history of one of metal's most resilient and successful acts, looking at the long, heavy path Metallica took on their rise to becoming legendary. The film tells its story with the help of archival interviews and performance footage, focusing on both the band's early days and the trajectory they took after the tragic death of their bassist Cliff Burton in 1986. Big names in metal journalism chime in with their perspectives on what helped the band rise to be one of the more consistently popular names in hard rock and thrash.
