Mission To Lars is about one disabled man’s journey to meet his childhood idol, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.
And while Lars was moved by the documentary, the other Metallica members couldn’t have cared less — according to filmmaker Kate Spicer.
She told Geeks Of Doom in a recent interview, ”There’s no two ways about it. James Hetfield and the other guys were not into our project, no way.”
Spicer added, “It’s funny – nobody’s really asked me about that. They were quite… they weren’t into it at all. You could tell it was Lars’ thing. But I feel that’s kind of their thing – they’ve just got their own things going on.”
The documentary centered around Tom Spicer, an English sufferer of the learning disability Fragile X. Fragile X Syndrome is a mental disability which affects mostly males and is the most common known single-gene cause of autism.
“It’s a great testament into a world I didn’t know much about and a great testament to the importance of music and what it means to different people,” said Ulrich.
