Stuffed with examples of the nose-thumbing spirit that has sustained their popularity despite the bandmates' refusal to reveal their individual identities, the film is a fine primer for the curious.
We hear statements of admiration for the band from such longtime fans as Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller) and "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening. But there is precious little context or critical thinking to make one truly care.
The film is a must-see for those who want to be introduced to the band, even if part way through you may find that you've hit your limit.
There's plenty of eye and ear-catching stimulation in this survey of the Residents' 40-year career.
Theory of Obscurity revels in the paradox of this most notorious band of unknowns while poking at the embers of the myth.
Theory of Obscurity is loaded with clips from The Residents' deranged promo films and shows, and makes a case for them as innovators of the music video format.
The task of parsing the meaning behind all their conceptual madness is left to a small but faithful army of fans, who speak lovingly of the band's devotion to art at the expense of commercial success.
Music documentary offers exposure to The Residents, but it's mostly for fans
