Trailer: Edgar Wright’s “Sparks” Doco

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

“Hot Fuzz” and “Baby Driver” helmer Edgar Wright delivers his first feature documentary with “The Sparks Brothers,” a look at the highly influential if not widely known pop duo whose career spans 50 years and 25 albums.

Ron and Russell Mael are Sparks with this documentary dealing with their rise to fame, various reinventions and comebacks along the way, and all done with a comedic sensibility along with a lot of famous talking heads.

Dubbing the pair as “your favorite band’s favorite band,” the film launched at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to very good reviews. It will release in cinemas on June 18th.
