I enjoyed Fix, but it really left me wanting more from it. There wasn't enough input from Paul Barker. Most of the footage was filmed on the 1997 Sphinctour, and although there are much more recent interviews included, none of the period between 1998 - 2009 (i think that's when the filming wrapped on the recent interviews) is really delved into at all. There were a LOT of interesting things that happened with Ministry in the meantime, and some of their best work was released in that period, but none of it even mentioned.

This is more of a time capsule "here's where Ministry was in 1997" with some reflective interviews of friends and associates thrown in. It's NOT a documentary about Ministry. It doesn't cover the beginning, Wax Trax, the end of the WB years, the start of Al's own label, the departure of Paul Barker, the resurrection of Ministry as a powerful creative force after Al got sober ... none of the redemption that happened AFTER the truly awful behavior shown in Fix is included, so rather than being a story arc of a downward spiral and subsequent rebirth, it's just a cautionary tale of "don't let this happen to you" at the point where things really seemed to be getting out of hand with Mr. Jourgensen.

It really is more about Al and his personal demons around 1997 than anything else. If you want to see that, then this is for you. If you were looking for a comprehensive retrospective, documentary, etc, then this isn't it. And someone really needs to make one of the latter.

I bought this directly from 13th Planet to support Al, his label, his music, etc. I can't really say it's a great documentary, but it's certainly an interesting glimpse at the mind and machinations of a true musical iconoclast at a seemingly dark period in his life.

Worth the price of admission? No, not really. While fix is a good & honest documentary, overly honest, it might as well have had nothing to do with Ministry at all. I found this to just be disappointing, not the documentary as much as the band in general. While honesty is a beautiful thing, its anything but gratifying to find out one of your favorite bands from when you were younger were just a bunch of rock-star a@#!@#e junkies. It's one thing to be aware of a band you love having drug issues, it's a whole other thing to watch them shoot up, and act like cliche junkies for 2 hours straight. I did always wonder what the hell happened to the band after Psalm 69, this pretty much explains it. What happens in these two hours? You watch Al strung out on heroin more times than i can count, you watch Al cover himself with oils to ward of evil spirits and force the other members of the band to wear talisman's, you watch Al buy various bulletproof vests claiming that stalkers are going to kill him, or rant about how "people" are out to get him, and you watch the band ramble on and on about nasty groupies and the things they do with them. The name is fitting though, ill give it that, Al's crippling drug addiction seems to be the major centerpiece of the movie, and you pretty much watch everyone in the band either join in, or turn the other way and just agree with everything Al either says or does. The major reason i was aggravated with this documentary was the fact that as a teen i felt Ministry's music said intelligent things, it almost felt like part of this movie's job was to discredit that, and show what a bunch of total creeps they actually are. Fix isn't necessarily a bad documentary, it just has little to do with Ministry as a band, and more to do with Ministry as Al Jourgenson, and the drug addiction that more or less killed ministry as a creative force. This is much more a rental than a buy, and i doubt many people will want to watch this more than once.

This thing is 93 minutes of nothing more than Al getting high and his behavior while high. It's not about Ministry as a band at all. It's more sad than entertaining. This thing should have been a 10 minute bonus footage track on some Ministry Live DVD. 90minutes of Al Jourgensen high is boring.

The interviews with Ogre, David Yow, Maynard and others is interesting but there is very little of this in it.

Don't waste your time or money on this. Instead go buy/watch the LEMMY documentary. It IS worth watching.

I watched the doc and it is pretty much what I expected. Al Jourgensen is paranoid as can be, he is superstitious, he has wild opinions and immature behavior. He also shoots alot of dope.

I listened to an interview with Al on the Alex Jones show about Al's beliefs in society falling apart in 2012 and his beliefs that the world is run by Alien overlords and while these are his opinions and he is welcome to have them, the guy is definitely troubled. I knew what he is like before watching the documentary and it didn't give me any new opinions of him.

There are chunks of the sphinctour dvd thrown in to fill a bit of time, as well as some footage from that tour that did not make it to the sphinctour DVD for good reason. There are also brief interviews with some other Icons that I am very familiar with (Ohgr from skinny puppy, maynard from Tool, Trent from NIN, Lemmy from Motorhead) and some others who I am not as familiar with. But Al and his antics are really the main focus of the show. You'll see him ranting about groupies, pulling his pants down to show his butt or sticking his penis in a cooked chicken but he gives very little intelligent insight into himself, into drug abuse or into Ministry as a band or the music industry. If it weren't for the other people being interviewed this documentary would be pretty lame because Al is quite obnoxious. This documentary makes me glad that I am not like Al Jourgensen. Most people would not want that lifestyle.

I watched it and it was a serious trainwreck, but that is why it was somewhat interesting. Al is a trainwreck, but you want to watch, at least for a bit, but in the end you feel glad that you are not in the wreck. I'm also glad that I rented it instead of buying it.
