Director Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner) solemnly alerts us to the glory that was Spinal Tap in his introduction to this “rockumentary” about the legendary British heavy-metal group, featuring lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), lead singer David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), and a succession of drummers whose careers were cut short by spontaneously combusting on their stool, drowning in somebody else’s vomit, or otherwise perishing in untimely fashion. Under DiBergi’s studious interrogation, the band and their familiars retrace the band’s evolution from head-bopping Mersey Beat poseurs to head-banging metal poseurs, each change in musical direction or tonsorial chic having little effect on the surviving trio’s sublime idiocy. For, as St. Hubbins (he’s the “deep” one, relatively speaking) sagely observes, “It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.”

Maybe the funniest, and most truthful, look at rock culture ever filmed and a personal best for all involved!

The Guild Cinema is located at 3405 Central Avenue NE, in the Nob Hill area.
