Critic Reviews for Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words

All Critics (75) | Top Critics (25)

In a perfect world, "Zappa in his own words" would really mean nothing but his music and lyrics, which is where he would be truly himself - but this is nonetheless a thoroughly entertaining watch.

Any true Zappa fan will eat this stuff up. For novices it may open up the universe.

July 28, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Trying to communicate the essence of musician Frank Zappa and his body of work in words is futile, even when the words are his own.

July 14, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

You don't have to be a fan of Frank Zappa's music to enjoy "Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in HIs Own Words," Thorsten Schutte's documentary.

July 14, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Although there is some nice performance footage, the film isn't a good way for a beginner to get a grip on Zappa's music, which spans from proto-punk to classical. It is a nice journey through Zappa's mind for the already converted.
