Breaking a Monster


2016 | 93 minutes | Rated NR

A band of 13-year-olds gets caught in the gears of the star-making machinery in Darkon director Luke Meyer's empathetic and compelling documentary. Power trio Unlocking the Truth, three black kids from Brooklyn, shred like Death by way of Metallica. The way they see it, fame is theirs for the taking. When they post a live video that garners over a million hits, gap-toothed producer Alan Sacks comes calling, and the culture clash begins. The kids are from working-class stock, while Alan is a showbiz vet who meditates daily. I can't imagine a better companion piece to Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's Metallica-on-the-rocks documentary, Some Kind of Monster.
