Edgar Wright's music documentary captures art-pop pioneers Sparks at an improbable late career high, as well as recounting the story of how they got there, and why they aren’t as celebrated as they should be.

There aren't many bands who arrive at their 50th anniversary on a creative roll, still luring in new generations of fans, making Top 10 albums, and doing so by releasing music every bit as challenging and inventive as their earliest recordings. In fact, there is precisely one: Sparks. Ron and Russell Mael are rock's original Odd Couple, as inscrutable as they are fascinating.
