No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
For every insight, there are a half-dozen meandering conversations and unguided reminiscences.
Fjellestad exhibits a playful adoration for the man and the otherworldly sounds of his machine in an intriguing rendering of one of music technology's seminal figures.
Largely, you get to watch a nice old guy waxing philosophical in his beloved vegetable garden, in his workshop or amid city traffic.
The doc focuses exclusively on Robert Moog, and Robert Moog is, well, kind of boring.
A collection of dry interviews and so-so music, it's better suited to public TV than the big screen.
It's unfortunate that there are so many ideas left behind before they get a chance to start
There are things to be learned here, but it would take a real aficionado to geek out on all the knobs and circuit boards on display.
The testimonials are plentiful, coming from the varied likes of prog-rock kings Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson to current turntablists like DJ Spooky, Money Mark and Mix Master Mike.
Would that this affectionate tribute to the unassuming man behind a musical revolution had more energy of its own.
If you're not fascinated by synthesized sound, this could be the longest seventy minutes of your life.
