METALLICA: Out-Fox Brit Crits at Glastonbury With Film

METALLICA: Out-Fox Brit Crits at Glastonbury With Film Metallica attempted to make light of some protesters at this weekend's Glastonbury Festival in England by introducing their set with a tongue-in-cheek seven-and-a-half-minute film. The protests came in reaction to frontman James Hetfield's hosting The Hunt, a History Channel mini-series about Alaskan bear hunters.
The short film, directed by Julien Temple -- who helmed the notorious Sex Pistolsdocumentary The Great Rock and Roll Swindle, among others -- seems to suggest that Britain's own sport of fox hunting is more inhumane than bear hunting. It ends with the four Metallica members in bear costumes shooting the fox hunters with rifles. Oddly, it begins as a tribute to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly actor Eli Wallach, who died last week, before abruptly shifting scenes to the fox hunt, accompanied by The Sweet's 1970s hit "Fox on the Run."
