  • Jason's rating of the film Don't Blink - Robert Frank

    Formally unkempt. Thank God. It's not another one of these utterly predictable and formally DOA career-summation docs. It is a portrait, not a summation, somewhat atemporal in its engagement w/ Frank's life and career (certainly not beholden to leaden linearity), and determined to capture peripheral moments that say a great deal, not at all obviously. Getting Hal Wilner to organize the music was pretty goddamn wise.
