The Fearless Freaks -- If The Flaming Lips have had an accidental career, then this documentary is indeed an accident as well...After combing through 400 hours of footage that includes a decade of home movies, personal interviews, live shows, music videos and their first full-length feature film (Christmas On Mars), The Fearless Freaks is at last fully realized.

Did You Know?

Wayne Coyne:This is really how you die; it's just one minute, you're just cooking up someone's order of french fries, and the next minute you're laying on the floor and they blow your brains out, and there's no music, there's no significance, it's just random - it could've been anybody.See more »

Great intimate film, 23 October 2006
Author: albob3000 from United States

This is a wonderful film, and one can tell that it's definitely a labor of love.

I must say that I was disturbed by the drug use scene with Stephen. However, this is because I am a former addict. But I still think it was unnecessary to be so graphic; but he truly shares the perils of heroin addiction in the most real way.

I do wonder how the movie will turn out. I can't believe the amount of energy Wayne possesses toward his projects. I found him to be a great role model (I am an artist myself, and quite lazy by comparison).

Only one more complaint. Like in many documentaries, they will tease you with the beginning of a wonderful song, then speak over it, or cut away. I could have used less talk and more music, since this is what the documentary is ultimately about; well beside their lives and the creative process.

I highly recommend this film. Oh, and yes, it is a bit too long; but it only proves how engaged the filmmaker is in the project.
