Music has an enormous influence on our minds, and we watch music documentaries to know more about the bands. Edgar Wright’s The Sparks Brothers checks off these rock doc boxes, but it also has a joyful spirit that we have not seen from the genre for some time.
The Sparks have always been a joyful band with a gift of whipping together. The Brothers and the band moved to England back in the 70s and saw success. Many casual fans probably didn’t even know they were from sunny Los Angeles, not London.
They have some of the top pop performances, and the director has shown the real-life journey of the Sparks Brothers. With 25 studio albums under their belt, the sparks still live up to their name as musicians and people, and Wright’s film is a celebration of their five-decade-long vision and under-appreciated influence.
