The film is not meant to be a glorification of a flawed man. It does not gloss over the fact that Frank Zappa was utterly consumed with his own thoughts and opinions, and held a barely-disguised contempt for everyone who was not him. But the movie does celebrate the visionary who fought for anti-censorship in music and the uniqueness of his musical genius.
