“I grew up in places where freak flags rarely fluttered.
Frank Zappa’s face, chill with knowledge, would pop up on occasion in the wild. I always took notice. It was a bit of a mermaid with the promise of something novel. Alex Winter’s new film ZAPPA documents all the ways he fulfilled that promise.
Zappa’s noggin had Christmas light strings of ideas criss-crossing his skull’s interior. His indefatigable nature allowed him to run a lot of them down. Director Alex Winter sews a portrait from current interviews and the Zappa Trust’s massive film archive. It’s a crazy quilt that surrounds and allows you to meet the man. The poster I made for it might glow, not sure. Turn out the lights when you get it.”
