“This was superbly made, very funny, and surprisingly uplifting.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;ve watched a lot of music documentaries that have interesting content but pretty boring presentation, and so to have one come along thatu0026#39;s this entertaining and this well edited was a real treat.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSparks have had an incredibly interesting history to the point where you could use stock standard documentary techniques and still make something watchable, but Wrightu0026#39;s passion for this duo really shines through and makes for a documentary that will make any viewer see the weird, funny and captivating appeal of Sparks.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt makes me feel like Iu0026#39;ve got a lot of catching up to do, as Iu0026#39;d only listened to four Sparks albums before watching this, and there are at least several more covered here that I feel I should check out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOnly complaint Iu0026#39;d have is that it gets a little long winded near the end, with an epilogue that stretches on forever, with so many points where you think itu0026#39;s about to finish but doesnu0026#39;t. Itu0026#39;s like the Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ending but for documentaries.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMaybe Wright just didnu0026#39;t want to finish making this movie about a band he clearly loves, so for that I canu0026#39;t blame him too much.”
