Theory of Obscurity: A Film About The Residents
What it is: A documentary about the forty year history of rock’s most mysterious group, Theory of Obscurity likely won’t reveal the identities of the eyeball masked avant rockers, but it should provide a fascinating glimpse at the bizarre history of these legends.
Why we’re excited: The Residents are one of the most fascinating groups in music history, and they have been pioneers of everything from music videos to mash-ups to video games. Even if the documentary is short on answers about who they really are, getting more of a peek behind the curtain at the band is more than worth it.
