Atom User Reviews for The Sparks Brothers
Going in I knew of Sparks, but wasn’t especially familiar with them. What sold me on seeing this was Edgar Wright and the trailer, that said, this film is fantastic! This was the most enjoyable movie that I have seen in quite some time.
The film is too long for the non-enthusiast. And we don’t learn much about the brothers’ personal lives – it’s as if they exist for the band and nothing else. But even if the music isn’t your thing, it’s hard not to admire the duo’s commitment to their creative impulses.
Accentuated by smart insights from collaborators, celebrity fans and fellow musicians, the documentary is as deeply affectionate as Sparks’ songs are catchy and offbeat.
While The Sparks Brothers may be a bit too exhaustive for those merely seeking an introduction to the band, longtime fans will be thrilled by the deluxe treatment.
