Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words review - career highlights of a serious musical joker

26 January 2016 2:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This documentary about the oddball musician may not satisfy completists, but it’s still a fascinating run-through of Zappa’s greatest – and weirdest – moments

My wife can handle my snoring and my tendency to forget to do the dishes, but all bets are off when I drag out my Frank Zappa albums. To the great many people who just can’t stand the man’s music, it is an antic mess of arpeggios, endless guitar solos, puerile baby noises, irritating musique concrète and vulgar lyrics. (I’ll agree to a lot of this, and that’s coming from a diehard fan.) German director Thorsten Schütte’s documentary Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words would finally, I think, get her to understand just what it is that I love about the foul-mouthed mustachioed freak. That is, if I could ever convince her to watch it.
