Must Watch Before You Die #3: 'This is Spinal Tap' (1984)

A ‘rocumentary' by director Rob Reiner on the legendary British rock band ‘Spinal Tap’, covering their trip to the USA to promote one of their forthcoming albums is the perfect answer to the ‘must watch’ question. I won’t say a word more about this, just that you must, must, must watch this film as soon as you can. Unlike other posts, I’m purposefully not giving any ‘must watch reasons’ for this film, because the most important reason will spoil the film for you.

If you have not watched this film, stop talking about it with anyone, do NOT google or wiki about it. Just watch it.

If you have watched this film already, I’m sure you understand me. Please respect this sentiment and do NOT give a hint about anything to those who haven’t watched it. Just ask them to do it soon, so that we could discuss.

By the way, for your information, Entertainment Weekly rated ‘This is Spinal Tap’ as the greatest cult film of all-time. Come, join the fan club.
