July 4th with Frank Zappa.On the 4th of July, my wife and I had a patriotic morning: we went to see the new movie about musician and forward thinking iconoclast, Frank Zappa. The film is called “Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words”. It is very highly recommended. It’s a chronological series of interviews with Frank where he tries to communicate as best he can with a wide variety of interviewers. He has a varying amount of success but does the best he can to turn away from the stereotypes that surround him. He’s trying to present himself as a serious composer and most of the questioners can’t get past his reputation as a comedian and buffoon. They refuse to listen to his answers and stick to their preconceived notions. His point of always keeping an open mind about all things is denied despite proof to the contrary. As a man who truly believed in personal freedom and America this is quite difficult. Sarcasm abounds. Seek out this film and see it before it disappears!
