Cast[edit]

Summary[edit]

The film chronicles the critical acclaim, lack of commercial success and the cult following of the band [1]

Reception[edit]

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film received a 92% approval rating, from 34 critics, with an average score of 7/10. [2] The Village Voice's Stephanie Zacharek praised director Drew DiNicola's documentary, writing that it "honors that sense of mystery, telling the band's story as if whispering it through the cracks in a wall. There's very little footage of the band themselves—their elusive magic found its truest expression in the studio rather than before a live audience."[3]
