Scott “Wino” Weinrich belongs to the few men that shine with their musical quality and their extraordinary personality. He is a hero of heavy metal music, and his stardom is the theme of this documentary. Created and directed by Sharlee Patches, this documentary catches Wino, from the very beginning to our days – the epic life and times of Wino are narrated here, and we learn everything about him, in a film that lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes approximately. We see Wino on action and in his everyday life, we see him playing and singing in rare footage, and talking/confessing to the camera, which follows him at home, in the car, everywhere. A lot of historic musicians talk about Wino –  Bobby Liebling (Pentagram), Dixie Dave (Weedeater), Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down), Pepper Keenan (Corrosion of Conformity), Henry Rollins (Black Flag), and more. Apart from the celebrities, friends and family also give us useful information about Wino. That way we see every side of Wino, as an artist and as a person, and explore his great works with Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, Probot etc. The direction is exceptional, the photography beautiful, in an inspired documentary, which won’t tire you – on the contrary, after watching the captivating story of Wino, you will want to listen again to all the fantastic albums, where he is involved – or explore them for the first time! Enjoy this documentary and bow to Wino – the man, the myth, the legend!
