July 14, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Although there is some nice performance footage, the film isn't a good way for a beginner to get a grip on Zappa's music, which spans from proto-punk to classical. It is a nice journey through Zappa's mind for the already converted.

Eat That Question, a fascinating and compelling dive into an artist's uniquely ticking parts, gives voice to a complex dude and broadens the picture.
