Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/20/2005
"[Beesley] achieves a level of intimacy with the band members that most rock documentary directors can only dream of."
Mojo - 07/01/2005
"This DVD goes far in revealing the uncommonly close relationship between the band members and the outlandish brain trust behind them."

Description by OLDIES.com:

This 2-DVD set, The Fearless Freaks, is an intimate look at one of today's most acclaimed alternative rock groups, The Flaming Lips. Filmmaker Bradley Beesley, the band's long-time friend and director of all of their music videos since 1992, gives us an insider's look at their 20-year transformation from Oklahoma outsiders to Grammy-winning elder statesmen of the weird and the wonderful. This fascinating documentary features revealing interviews with band members past and present, and includes amazing footage from their entire career - truly capturing the eccentric and inventive world of The Flaming Lips.

Product Description:

Director Bradley Beesley's revealing documentary THE FEARLESS FREAKS fashions an insightful portrait of eccentric Oklahoma City rock band the Flaming Lips. Shot over a period of ten years, Beesley's film achieves an unprecedented level of intimacy due to his longtime friendship with the band, whom he first met in 1991 when they needed a filmmaker to shoot their music videos. Over the ensuing years, the Lips allowed Beesley to document not only their ever-evolving musical career--which grew from punk-drenched psychedelia to Brian Wilson-esque orchestral pop--but also the personal lives of band members Wayne Coyne, Steven Drodz, and Michael Ivins in their most private moments, including the death of Coyne's father and, most hauntingly, Drodz's ongoing heroin addiction. Culled from over 400 hours of footage, THE FEARLESS FREAKS blends Super-8 home movies, candid interviews, live performance footage, music videos, and outtakes from the feature film CHRISTMAS ON MARS into a compelling narrative that transcends the rockumentary genre to become a heartfelt meditation on personal growth and transformation. Juliette Lewis, Beck, Liz Phair, the White Stripes' Jack White, and Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue make cameo appearances.
