  1. 89
    Provides that rarest of documentary accomplishments: a glimpse into the artists' sunny, dark hearts.
  2. 88
    It could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.
  3. 88
    An uncommonly intimate portrait, in large part because the filmmaker, Bradley Beesley, is a longtime neighbor, friend, and collaborator.

    A real treat to 'grow up' with the Flaming Lips. The evolutionary process was never as clearly presented as it is here. Up, downs A real treat to 'grow up' with the Flaming Lips.

    It is honestly a rare thing that you walk away from a music documentary about a band you love with a higher opionion of the people involved It is honestly a rare thing that you walk away from a music documentary about a band you love with a higher opionion of the people involved than you had before it. Its sad, its funny but most of all the key players are genuinely appealing, fascinating and charming. I made the mistake of seeing this for the first time on the same night I saw Metallica's Some Kind Of Monster. Both great films but there are no prizes for guessing who come accross as the better people. See it, you'll love it! Full Review »
