Everything about this rings true. Everything negative that is said and everything good that is said makes perfect sense. And it's brought together well by some comments at the end. I was about 14 when I first heard Zappa and it's one of those moments where you think you're hearing the most amazing thing you're ever going to hear. Over the years it's been great to play Zappa for people and have them be amazed find out that is Zappa. This movie takes a look at a short period of time in his career that was rather chaotic and interesting and productive. I always support that a musician should be a musician and play the music they want to play. It's very sad when musicians get stuck playing whatever they first played when they got popular. Peter Frampton for example made a lot of money expanding on his early career but that made it hard for him to be the great blues musician that he is. Many cases. I always listen to the misogynistic period and think Zappa was Zappa. But that doesn't define him at all. This movie does exactly what it should do and covers this period of time with so many great moments and so many great interviews.
