  1. MrSpaceman's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    Weird, awkward, low budget, but has something to it which would make me watch again. Especially after reading about Greek muses and the philosophy of Berkley and Hume. Is Camus importart, too? Definitely a two-stars, but a two-stars worth watching...

  2. Al Burton's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    Paul Auster's characteristic meta-fictional wit doesn't translate in this film about a writer meeting his muse, primarily because of the awfully self-conscious, melodramatic performances and the tepid, unconvincing relationship at the centre of it all.

  3. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

  4. blyniukas's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    Silly, superficial and painfully awkward film. What a waste of everybody's time..

  5. ajdehany's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    Auster pushes the envelope with another story about a writer.

  6. Yulia Gaidakova's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    An amateurs' flop. Paul Austin is not a bad writer but needs to make many more films until he finds his voice or style. Not a bad premise and could have been executed with elegance, subtlety and inventiveness. The fast moving plot is vacuous,; dialogs and narrations are false, Iris Jacobs' performance - immensely irritating.. Time waisted

  7. Peter Manousakos's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    This is one of the most generous pieces of cinema I've seen in a while. Generous because it allows you, the viewer, to experience what the characters experience. Wonderful economy and ballsy delivery in a premise where the story can drag along mercilessly to drive home a theme that you think is delivered until one more layer is added. Above all, you'll enjoy it, you'll smile and connect with it on your own terms.

  8. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    I quite like the magical nature of some of Paul Auster's books, but this just did not not translate well to film. Baffling without being intriguing, and David Thewlis as love interest just doesn't seem right

  9. Dyln Spd's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    Cool concept but it felt as if the narrative was made up as it went along. The protagonist was badly casted, and the boiler repair guy was all wrong. It had potential, but it felt like it was trying too hard to be confusing or original, when in fact it was quite obvious.

    As featured in "The Book of Illusions" ??

  11. orangey's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    awful.just awful. a film school dropout could have directed it better. I haven't read anything by Mr Auster but I hope he's a better novelist than he is a director

  12. Ally the Manic Listmaker's rating of the film The Inner Life of Martin Frost

    By no means is this film a masterpiece. However, it is unusual, interesting, mysterious, and a breath of fresh air. I loved watching it.
