    This is a very interesting documentary whether you love the band or have a slight interest. The way it was made gave it an interesting spin. Hopefully the director will go on to even better things.

    These live performances and classic music videos drive home the point that part of the Giants' longevity flows from the fact that they can't be explained, only experienced.

    Loaded with tons of personal stories told by both Johns (the two main members of They Might Be Giants) as well as people within the music industry.
  3. Gigantic has the informal tone and structure of an illustrated scrapbook with excerpts from concert and television performances interwoven with lighthearted testimonials by friends, supporters, collaborators and admirers and augmented by witty animated segments.
