The Flaming Lips: The Fearless Freaks
2005 Documentary
“The Fearless Freaks is the most intimate portrait of a band you’re likely to see… as heartwarming and heartbreaking as the band’s music itself,” said Bill Crandall of Rolling Stone. Beesley captures the Flaming Lips’ deep-set Oklahoma roots with never-before-seen home movie footage and Coyne family photographs. Performance footage begins with the band’s early punk/noise phase, and continues throughout the years as the band’s shows become increasingly avant garde. At any given Flaming Lips concert, there may be puppets and light shows, animal suits and theatrical blood, balloons and confetti, or even a gigantic, Coyne-inhabited plastic ball, and all are represented in Beesley’s film.
