Frank_movie_poster

Synopsis – Jon, a young wanna-be musician, discovers he’s bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank.

My Take – Their is no easy way to describe this film, well it can be said its a black comedy about a guy wearing a huge head who makes weird music & of course has a weird band who tags along with him. Nevertheless the film is an excellent watch! The film is engaging, funny and moving. It has some wonderful scenes that made me laugh out loud and the direction is just beautiful with some truly clever touches.

Michael Fassbender as Frank

Luckily they have some major talents on hand to maintain the required balance: Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson,and Maggie Gyllenhaal, who are amazing. #Respect For Fassbender in particular there needs to be a special award for succeeding to do anything while wearing that huge fake head! The sluggish pacing & the confused 2nd half does play a spoilsport.

Frank as a whole doesn’t quite add up to more than the sum of its parts, it is nonetheless a wonderfully quirky, often hilarious, strangely touching piece of work. Well worth seeing and supporting!
