This Is Spinal Tap This Is Spinal Tap

Does for rock & roll what 'The Sound of Music' did for hills.

Legendary British rock band Spinal Tap is followed by a documentary film-maker during their attempt at an American comeback tour. The resulting film, interspersed with powerful performances showcasing Tap's pivotal music and profound lyrics, candidly follows the group as the difficult industry threatens to fade them into obscurity.
