What this documentary captures are the lifestyle, musings, fears and hopelessly flawed coping mechanisms of Al Jourgensen, the lead singer for Ministry. Trapped within the confines of rock super-stardom, record contracts and life on the road, his only escape is his drug use.
Another fascinating aspect of this film is the dynamic between the band members as they all attempt to cope with their unique lifestyle in their own ways while simultaneously dealing with Jourgensen's utter insanity. Much of the film is spent covering a time-frame in which Jourgensen is fighting intense bouts of paranoia, fearing he is going to be assassinated on stage. In one scene his manager is showing him two different bullet-proof vests he can wear while performing and Jourgensen's only response is, “Jesus Christ! They can put a man on the moon but they cant make a bullet-proof vest with a pocket for your fucking smokes!”
