Movie Info

Bradley Beesley's documentary The Fearless Freaks attempts to reveal some truths about the band The Flaming Lips. The Lips have built a loyal cult following, and the film -- compiled from footage taken over 15 years -- attempts to satisfy that cult, as well as interest those unfamiliar with the band, by including a combination of performance footage and candid moments. The director was allowed full access to Wayne Coyne and the other members of the band.

So darn watchable that it could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.

As artfully scrappy and likably wide-eyed as its subjects.

Cobbles together an appropriately whacked-out portrait of the band's surreal and haphazard career trajectory.

Audience Reviews for Fearless Freaks

This film leaves me with only one question: Did Wayne Coyne's wife inspire the band name?


Super Reviewer

I wish Wayne Cohn lived in my neighborhood.
