This Is Spinal Tap

This Is Spinal Tap

This Is Spinal Tap

The ever-quotable rock mockumentry classic from Rob Reiner and Christopher Guest - nailing the artistic hubris and the ridiculousness of rock n’ roll like no other. Popularising the mockumentary form as well as warning of the dangers in wearing vegetables in your pants through airport security, this improvisational gem remains the go-to skewering of the music industry.

Reiner's brilliantly inventive script and smart visuals avoid all the obvious pitfalls, making this one of the funniest ever films about the music business.
