EAT THAT QUESTION: FRANK ZAPPA IN HIS OWN WORDS

12:30   4:50   7:15   9:20

Must End Tuesday, July 26 Closed Captioned

DIRECTED BY THORSTEN SCHÜTTE

An hilarious, all-archival footage portrait of legendary rock star / composer Frank Zappa – from his 1963 clean-cut appearance on The Steve Allen Show, to full counter-culture freaky regalia, as leader of the Mothers of Invention. “Rare interview clips, concert footage and news reports from all over the world. A portrait of Zappa (1940-1993) that reflects his wit, typically ornery intelligence and inability to suffer fools politely, let alone gladly.” – Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter.

Reviews

EAT THAT QUESTION collects disparate concepts and perceptions and unifies them into a riveting film, delivered in my father’s own words. It’s a remarkable history lesson and serves as a gateway into his musical mind.”
– Dweezil Zappa

“One of the rock era’s most idiosyncratic star musicians. A challenging outlier in the rock field, one adored by the adventurous few but fundamentally at odds with a music industry he soon came to loathe. Zappa was always sharply articulate in airing firm opinion on nearly any given subject. Always entertaining.”
– Dennis Harvey, Variety

“Simple yet engaging. An in-depth look into an artist whose work was complex, yet whose outlook and demeanor was as open, honest and relaxed as one could get. Schutte manages to form a tight narrative around this fascinating man. ‘The Steve Allen Show,’ the famous interview where Zappa claimed that ‘bad words’ are meaningless, his brilliant testimony against censorship when Tipper Gore spearheaded a conservative witch hunt – they’re all here.”
– Oktay Ege Kozak, The Playlist/IndieWire
