Keanu Reeves and Company Raise Their Rock Goblets to 'Anvil'

Metalheads, movie fans, and anyone looking for a hilarious, heartbreaking, and-as Keanu Reeves' put it perfectly at its L.A. premiere- "inspiring" experience, here is the movie that you should go see if you're in LA or NY this weekend (opening soon hopefully at theaters everywhere)...Anvil! The Story of Anvil.

You know that a film (a documentary no less) about a Canadian rock band in their '50s must be something special when-depsite the low-budget roots and low-budget distributor (Abramorama...who?)-the film pulls in the type of A-list mix of celebs and rockers that showed up Tuesday night at Hollywood's Egyptian Theater.

Amongst those swapping devil horns in the crowd, besides host Keanu Reeves: Ryan Gosling, Dustin Hoffman, Henry Rollins, Mark McGrath, Rufus Sewell, Duff McKagan (of Velvet Revolver/Guns N' Roses), Scott Ian from Anthrax, and lead singer Kevin Cronin from REO Speedwagon.

Why the commotion? Well, besides being a real-life version of This Is Spinal Tap, the Anvil story is genuinely funny and touching, detailing the highs and lows of a band that has received praise from metal legends Slash, Metallica and Slayer, yet still has its core members struggling to make ends meet by supplementing nightly rock jaunts with day gigs as catering guys and phone marketers.

While Anvil won't even come close to dethroning Hannah Montana at the top of this weekend's pop movie box office, it's encouraging and moving to see them finally getting some just due, from a standing ovation during their post-movie, live concert, to a just-launched cross-country tour supported by VH1.

It's been a long road, and thoroughly engrossing ride for singer Steve 'Lips' Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner. To these 30+ year veterans of the metal scene, and for the well-documented journey presented here by phenom filmmaker Sacha Gervasi, we give all involved an iron-clad, two fists in the air "Metal on Metal" salute!
