LEMMY

USA, 2010 (MIFF 2010, Backbeat)

Director: Greg Olliver, Wes Orshoski

More than any other rock musician, he is the baddest motherfucker in the world.” - Dave Grohl

Lemmy Kilmister and God get in a fight, who wins? Trick question, Lemmy is God. Alice Cooper, Lars Ulrich, Ozzy Osbourne and a cast of thousands attest to this fact as we go on the road with Motörhead and get an insight into the hard-rock life and times of one of the greatest forebears of heavy metal.

With his imposing stage-presence, a penchant for Nazi memorabilia and the adulation of millions of fans around the world Lemmy remains a throwback to non-commercial rockers of the past. Unchanged and unaffected, with Lemmy what you see is what you get: a living legend.
