Never heard of Sparks before seeing this film, but I don’t pay much attention to pop music. They have had a musical career of about 50 years, full of smart and humorous lyrics, framed by great music, all of it written by the two of them. They are two brothers who get along and love what they are doing. Who could ask for more?
Enjoyable if Somewhat One Note
At 2h 21m this is a long documentary but while some reviews I’ve seen say it’s too long I thought it flew by and really enjoyed the whole film. I’ve never heard any of Sparks music but loved hearing their songs and learning about their 50 year history, it’s amazing seeing who they’ve influenced and how they’ve grown and evolved. When it comes to criticisms I will say that after a while the documentary does begin to feel somewhat one note, always just talking heads telling us of how much they love the band and how they’ve been influenced followed by a bit of music, while this is disrupted sometimes by short animations it does feel very similar, there’s also never really much criticism of the band, while I do love the music from what I’ve heard I’d still appreciate seeing differing views on the subject. To conclude The Sparks Brothers is an entertaining and interesting documentary with a few flaws that ends up as a high 7/10.
