Clever in a good way, this spirited documentary delves gently into the story of indie band They Might Be Giants, building a case for a couple of good-natured visionaries and pioneers who blazed trails for non-hair bands in the early days.

Their sheer existence affirms that all things corporate and bland don't always win out -- that music can be intimate, political and alienating, sometimes all on the same album.
