This is Spinal Tap review

In mockumentaries believability is important, acting and of course the screenplay. One of the pioneers of the genre, the picture is catching from start to finish despite some too ludicrous sequences, namely the deaths of the drummers. David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean) and Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) together with bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) are the main focus of the band, Spinal Tap. Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner) makes a documentary of the bands lifestyle and observes that there was more to the band than he thought possible. Highlights would be the "11" scene and the dwarf's dancing around the supposed giant Stonehenge megalith. Loads of cameos, funny lyrics, authenticity of the documentary was realistic. This is Spinal Tap is a fun mockumentary for rock/documentary/comedy fanatics.
