Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in his Own Words
Eat That Question is a skilful montage constructed entirely from archive footage from one of the most articulate voices in twentieth century music, Frank Zappa. A self-taught composer, musician, bandleader, producer and independent thinker, he first transcribed avant-garde compositions onto paper at fourteen before turning to rock music in his early twenties. Upon the 1966 release of his debut album, Freak Out, he swiftly became the most quotable voice of dissent in popular music. Tragically dying of cancer at age 52, the film serves as an essential document of a lost genius.
