User Reviews

 
This documentary opens up Zappa for the rest of us.
1 December 2020 | by diggnutsSee all my reviews

It's an excellent documentary on Frank Zappa. Chock full of nice stock footage used as context.

There is a lot of insight here. Many clips of Zappa and friends talking about their views and experiences as we've not seen before.

Winter is an excellent documentary maker.
