This is the absolute best film about Frank Zappa the man. A better understanding of an artistic genius than has been done before. This could be interesting to people who know little of him or his music. If you like/love Frank Zappa you need to own this documentary.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
