Rocky’s Review
Zappa

Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 - December 4, 1993) was not only a creative genius, but also an eloquent thinker who articulated the madness of his times with extraordinary wit. The film ZAPPA is not a retro trip into the past, but a thoroughly modern exploration of a man whose world view on art and politics were far ahead of his time, and profoundly relevant in our challenging times. "In Zappa, this legendary artist's uncompromising nature is bracing, bold and utterly refreshing." -Tribune News Service. [Director] "Winter gives Zappa pride of place among the most important composers of the 20th-century, sharing some extraordinary performances of his little-known classical work." -Washington Post. "It's a multimedia immersion, filled with rare footage of Zappa from his teenage years on, and assembled with the loving dexterity we've come to expect from Alex Winter as a filmmaker." -Variety
