Heavy Metal in Baghdad

In case you didn't hear our show on KSDT last Friday, we talked about the documentary Heavy Metal in Baghdad. The documentary is about the Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda who risk death to play the music they love.

Overall, the documentary has and good premise and is entertaining to watch but the filmmakers could have shown more about the band, its origins, the atmosphere in which they live, and the music. However, despite some shaky camera work and often amateurish questions by the filmmakers, the documentary is still an interesting study and is definitely worth checking out.
