Last year, Alex Winter returned alongside Keanu Reeves in the long-anticipated Bill and Ted Face the Music. But he also got musical in another way last year by directing Zappa, a documentary about famed musician Frank Zappa, who released a whopping 62 albums across his lifetime, dabbling in rock, pop, jazz, jazz fusion, orchestral arrangements and musique concrète.
With unprecedented access to the musician’s estate, Zappa is a chronicle of the musician’s life and career, from his humble beginnings sleeping inside the recording studio to selling out stadiums around the world.

In fact, we’re giving away a Blu-ray copy of Zappa signed by Alex Winter himself. Read More »
