One for the winos
Chances are that the last time you saw Maynard James Keenan, he was hunched over a mic belting metal ballads while sporting mohawk dreads and mangled footie pajamas. Now the reclusive frontman of Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer is getting down and dirty in the fields instead of onstage. Blood Into Wine looks at the alt-rockers foray into winemaking with his mentor, Eric Glomski, chronicling how the two came to own and operate the Arizona Stronghold Vineyards. Milla Jovovich, Patton Oswalt, and others appear in the documentary that has been called the Spinal Tap of Chardonnay or, conversely, could be the Sideways of rock and roll. Premiere screenings of the film with special-guest Q&A sessions and samples of Maynards wine will take place tonight and tomorrow.
