Hannes Rossacher's major documentary "Rammstein in Amerika" is a great journey.

This is a beautiful documentary on such an extremely talented musical group or band. Rammstein is one of my top favorites when it comes to German bands and this documentary shows how the roads were for them when they cracked the American Market. Sadly during this documentary is also points out the huge flaws in America and the music medium within it that seems to cause a continuous fought within the global music scene.
I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary, it's a wonderful experience to see even more of the group in which I have respected from the beginning, and to hear it all from their own words made it even better.
