★★★★½  "Amazing love letter to the best band you've never heard of" - Stuff.co.nz 

How can one rock band be successful, underrated, hugely influential, and criminally overlooked all at the same time? Edgar Wright's debut documentary THE SPARKS BROTHERS, which features commentary from celebrity fans Flea, Beck, Jack Antonoff, Jason Schwartzman, Neil Gaiman, and more, takes audiences on a musical odyssey through five weird and wonderful decades with brothers/bandmates Ron and Russell Mael celebrating the inspiring legacy of Sparks: your favorite band's favorite band.

★★★★ - Sydney Morning Herald
"thoroughly entertaining ...just as odd as you might hope but funnier than expected."

★★★★ - Little White Lies 
"Edgar Wright delivers a deliciously infectious, suitably absurdist ode to his unsung musical heroes."
