Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words

Dir. Thorsten Schütte USA 93 min R

2016 Sony Pictures Classics

A subtle, skillful montage constructed solely from historic footage, EAT THAT QUESTION—FRANK ZAPPA IN HIS OWN WORDS is an energetic celebration of this outspoken maestro. Zappa died far too early, in 1993, of cancer. How important then, that such unforgettable Zappa interviews and performances across three decades have been painstakingly gathered by director Thorsten Schütte from the obscure vaults of TV stations around the world to create this unique 90 minute feature documentary.

Following Zappa from clean-shaven, besuited youth, to fearless chief freak, to his relentlessly productive final days before his death at 52, EAT THAT QUESTION seats us right up front from the start; close enough to Zappa to read the flickering emotions in his eyes.
