| Great informative fun with these under-appreciated icons
This is really quite a fun and informative ride, especially for someone like myself who previously only had a very broad understanding of the importance and relevance of the band Sparks. Kimono My House was really the only album I'd heard, but after seeing this I've added about 8 of their albums to the playlists I frequent.

This band really is quite the anomaly in a very respectable way, and took many different forms throughout music history. This doc does a great job of laying it all out chronologically and having a good time with it. Honestly the only true weakness of the movie is that it is really quite a bit longer than it needed to be. It's 2 hours and 15 minutes and it really would have been much better off at 1 hour and 45 minutes. The last 45 minutes become extremely redundant, drag on, and would have served better with some serious trimming.

I'll never forget Ron Mael's performance face from here on out. Ever. Icon.
