It’s probably fair to say that the legendary Frank Zappa changed music; his life was spent exploring, developing and pushing the nature of music and musical form.

Alongside his musical career, Eat That Question traces Zappa’s work and cultural interventions; from his cult film 200 Motels to his stand against the emergent PMRC (Parent’s Music Resource Committee) in the ‘80s.

What makes the film so unique is that the voice here is Zappa’s own, culled entirely from archival interviews and footage of performances. The figure that emerges is never less than fascinating, whether appearing on television in the sixties showcasing the musical potentials of the bicycle on the Steve Allen Show or flying to the liberated Czech Republic where he was viewed as a cultural hero of the musical underground.

For Zappa’s legions of fans the film will be a pure joy to watch, while for the uninitiated it offers a fascinating insight into the visionary musician. 

“By giving us Zappa In His Own Words, Schütte has done a service to the man's legacy and provided a highly entertaining film at the same time. Eat that, naysayers.” – Twitch Film
