Frank Zappa Phase II: The Big Note 
Directed by Frank Scheffer 
  
So what is tonight's special treat? Let's see. A Dutch director named 
Frank Scheffer brings us a 90-minute documentary about legendary 
composer, Frank Zappa. 
  
Highly-insightful and entertaining clips and rare footage are spliced 
in, most notably four or five brief interviews with Zappa and a 
television appearance in which he had no facial hair. They really 
give you the feeling that Zappa was a clumsy and shy kid at one point 
in his life.  
  
In addition, several interviews with ex-members of his band give 
insight on what it was like to work with such a prolific and unique 
composer. A powerful man with a visionary mind, he pushed the limits 
of musician's abilities into realms they initially refused to 
consider exploring. His spontaneous conducting style while working 
with audiences and orchestras is probably still under-appreciated.
