Directed by Alex Winter (Bill of Bill & Ted, acclaimed maker of The Panama Papers, Deep Web & more), Zappa presents an intimate portrait of one of musics most important and iconoclastic figures, a man whose prolific and brilliant work changed music and the music industry for ever, & whose cultural impact – he even helped inspire a revolution in Czechoslovakia was far-reaching & enduring. With unprecedented access to Zappas archives, exclusive interview and eye-popping unseen live & behind-the-scenes footage, Zappa will open your mind to the creativity & fearlessness of a man whose worldview, art & politics were, in Winters words, far ahead of their time, & profoundly relevant in our challenging times.
- " It makes a very good case that you should be interested in Zappa's work. " – Mark Kermode (Kermode & Mayo's Film Review)
- " If there is one American musician who was overdue for a comprehensive documentary, that's Zappa – and this one doesn't disappoint. It's as messy as his music in parts, but that fits. " – Paul Byrnes (Sydney Morning Herald)
- " Key to the success of the film is the editing, a pinballing assault of free association, claymation and gleeful profanity, which goes some way towards recreating what it must have been like to spend time inside Zappa's head. " – Wendy Ide (Observer, UK)
