    A real treat to 'grow up' with the Flaming Lips. The evolutionary process was never as clearly presented as it is here. Up, downs and in betweens, this dvd is a great watch.

    Provides that rarest of documentary accomplishments: a glimpse into the artists' sunny, dark hearts.

    Will please devotees without attracting many, if any, new converts.

    An uncommonly intimate portrait, in large part because the filmmaker, Bradley Beesley, is a longtime neighbor, friend, and collaborator.
