We review the metal documentary, OMM.
|Look! We finally found the|
You can feel the isolation and awkwardness coming from the three subjects of One Man Metal, Jef Whitehead (a.k.a. Wrest of Leviathan) from Oakland, Tasmania’s Russell Menzies (a.k.a. Sin Nanna of Striborg) from Tasmania, and Scott Conner (a.k.a. Malefic of Xasthur) from Los Angeles. Their art is a perfect reflection of their personalities, perceptions, and feelings towards society and people in general.
Each subject is looked at equally during the documentaries forty-five minute running time and you get a very deep look (considering how hard these people are to contact and speak to) into the homes, lives, and even personalities of the three subjects in this documentary. The most prolific of the three, Jef Whitehead (a.k.a. Wrest of Leviathan) is the really gem in this film. With almost three dozen releases under Leviathan, we get a glimpse into what has motivated him to keep working and what put him where he is now. For a fan such as myself, this documentary could be done with that.
|I think black and white is so much|
more artistic. So much more.
Don't be too metal to share this review.
Watch One Man Metal here.
