As a cult musician permanently encased in a giant plastic head, Michael Fassbender gives an amazingly effective performance in this weirdly celebratory satire. As obstinately uncommercial as their name is unpronounceable, art rock band The Soronprfbs are evolving in their own universe. Enter their nemesis, the impressionable, fame-obsessed and minimally talented Jon (Domhnall Gleeson) who steps in to replace their suicidal keyboard player, then dedicates his Twitter account to ending their obscurity. Earning the instant enmity of theremin virtuoso Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal), Jon works on opening up the bands enigmatic, avowedly brilliant leader Frank (Fassbender).
