Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich cited film as being his biggest inspiration and passion.

During a Salesforce “Dreamforce” conference in Metallica’s Bay Area home, Ulrich discussed his love for film.

“Those of you who know me know that my biggest passion in the world of art is film, and I think film as a medium still has a lot of — there’s a lot of exciting things that are happening, a lot of barriers that are still being broken down,” Ulrich said. “When I see a great movie — I saw a movie a couple of days ago called Honey Boy. I saw a movie two days ago, a preview of a movie that I highly recommend, called Uncut Gems, with Adam Sandler, that’s coming out in the next month. When you see movies at that level — they’re rare — but when you see movies like that, it makes me wanna go back to Metallica and create: write songs [and] play music.”
