Movie Reviews

Sparks Rule!! The Best Band In The World
Anthony August | Ft. Lauderdale, Florida | 04/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sparks once again prove that they are the most under-rated band in the world. "Lil' Beethoven-- Live in Stockholm" is a dazzling visual and musical feast, not only capturing their best album ever "Lil' Beethoven" in concert, but also including a bonus second half which features many of Sparks' classic songs. Stunningly artistic projections provide a backdrop for the band's eccentric, smart, pop music. Many bonus features are provided which show a rare glimpse at a soundcheck, a great dressing room visit, a brief history of the myth of the character Lil' Beethoven narrated by Ron and Russell Mael, and a short travelogue of scenic Stockholm where the concert was shot. After a lot of trial and error, I also found 2 hidden bonus concert tracks that were mentioned in the Sparks fan club newsletter.

A not to be missed document for anyone who hasn't caught the magic of Sparks live in concert!"
Another Brilliant, Genre-defying Triumph
Shannon Baumgarten | Stockton, CA | 04/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ron, the master of underdog lyrical heroes, and Russell, the eternal teen idol, transcend rock-n-roll with this masterpiece of art meets pop music. Count on the Mael brothers to defy traditional concert videos with their unconventional visuals and defiant staging. Sure, it would have been logical to perform their most recent CD, Lil' Beethoven, with a full orchestra, but where's the rebellion in that? Instead, the two critical darlings (along with drummer/babe Tammy Glover and guitarist Dean Menta) take their fans on an adventure that stretches from post-modern alienation ("Your Call is Very Important to Us") and emotional longing ("My Baby's Taking Me Home") to the futility of contemporary life ("Rid'em Cowboy") and adolescent posers ("Suburban Homeboy")."

"The Mael Bro's have been at it for so long is it any wonder?
Entertainment at it's wryest best. And pretty cool, too."
