    The Sparks Brothers (2021, Edgar Wright)

    Blog!

    I really don't care anymore
    About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
    And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
    And everybody puttin' everybody else down
    And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

    This was marvelous and very captivating. Also I feel that an even longer movie was in there somewhere, considering Edgar Wright covers 50 years of music. I'll admit I had never heard of The Sparks' Brothers before, and their music seems pretty cool and very unique. I loved the interviews and how candid the brothers themselves were as well. I'm glad I got to see this as not too many documentaries come to my city. Hopefully that changes.

    I have no doubt I would like Sparks if I went into their discography for a listen. They’re the kind of musicians I throughly enjoy - inventive and firmly available to changes, yet with a distinct focus that threads a line through their sound. BUT. This might be the worst music documentary I’ve ever seen. There’s no pause for meaning, conflict, heart... its a endless pounding of testimonials. Cheeky and cute in painfully trite ways. An endless infomercial with no break to breathe. Likely the worst edited movie I’ll see this year.
