Aro Recommended I Am Thor


USA 2015, 84 minutes
Dir. Ryan Wise
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary / Grunge & Metal

Topics: Biopic.


Aroview: A spiritual cousin to THE STORY OF ANVIL, this is another endearing tale from the fringes of the "heavy metal" music scene, this time charting the rise and fall of Jon Mikl Thor, whose eponymous band fell short of the bigtime in the 70s, but whose personal status as a cult icon earns him another chance at reviving his career.

Portraying the unvarnished reality of show business, the film transcends the built-in cringe-factor by finding a likable, sincere and indomitable middle-aged man beneath the fake-armoured, body-building, steel-bending stage persona.
