Review in Brief: The Sparks Brothers (2021)

You’re a lot more likely to fall in love with the very alternative musical duo Sparks after watching Edgar Wright’s comprehensive, affectionate rock doc THE SPARKS BROTHERS. Wright interviews famous fans (often having fun with the captions in the process), collaborators and the Mael Brothers themselves and tells the remarkable, weird and wonderful story of their career with footage from performances, backstage, music videos and animation. It’s about their relationship and their work more than their lives, which intentionally remain illusive, so don’t come expecting any massive personal revelations about the Brothers Mael. What you can expect is passionate album-by-album discussion of the music, what it means and what it means to people all presented in a playful, knowing style worthy of Sparks themselves. SSP
