A document, well worth it for fans
1 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The material is not their best, and the audio recording is worse (not helped by this being one of Firesign's loudest and most frantic pieces.) Still, this short film of the 4 or 5 manages to capture at least some of what their live performances must be like, and even attempts, with some success, a visual mix that matches the density of the audio and conceptual montage. The Firesign Theatre are excellent performers as well as brilliant writers, and this all-too-short tape displays that well. It's a shame that they never managed to film some of their more focused early pieces.
