Theory of Obscurity: A Film About the Residents

This mind-bending documentary attempts to tell the story of influential, avant-garde San Francisco band The Residents. Since they're noted as much for their anonymous (always masked) stage presence as for their artsy videos, it's no surprise that the band members have declined to be interviewed on camera. Filmmakers, instead, rely on the group's psychedelic audio/visual output and copious commentary from the legions of cult-like Residents fans to flesh out the who, what and why. 87 minutes
