Frank Regizat de Lenny Abrahamson
The film, co-written by Peter Straughan and Sievey’s former bandmate (and author in his own right) Jon Ronson, revives the character only to reimagine its backstory significantly. The resulting film is often inspired—an ultimately moving portrait of an artist conflicted about fielding an audience, and an impressively sustained look through the keyhole at how genius works.

Fassbender turns out to be strangely perfect for the part. Not unlike Tom Hardy, who had to spend practically almost all of The Dark Knight Rises with most of his face covered, he can work wonders with his sheer physical presence — not just with how he moves, but also with how he stands still. Frank at times seems like a dynamo of random, freewheeling energy, and other times like a puppet, waiting to be moved…

Frank is the ultra-stealth, anti-Begin Again. Whereas the latter mocked commercial formula while hypocritically sticking to one, this movie upends seemingly traditional elements to explore them through an oblique lens. It is itself a bit of a disarming, resurrected Humpty Dumpty—an oddly endearing collection of disparate pieces put back together again as an abstract artwork.

Ce spun cinefilii?

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Frank

    An indie music satire about the dangers of worshiping the romanticized ideal of a damaged outsider artist. On this ground, it's surprisingly thoughtful and tender in the end. The finale, where we watch as the schizoid ramblings of a man in pain get turned to wonderful musical expression, is some kind of beautiful. These guys don't want the music industry, they just want to play. And thank god they can have it.

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Frank

    Fassbender is his generation's finest screen actor. With 'Frank' I expected a frothy performance in his mate's quirky indie flick, if only as a respite from his heavier roles. But he proves that even papier maché cannot hide his charisma and pathos - his Frank is as tortured a soul as cinema has ever seen, and the tonal shift in the final act make this not a footnote in his resumé, but a genuine highlight. (4.5)

  • Benji's rating of the film Frank

    One of my favourite films of the year. Brilliant.

  • Giles J Davis's rating of the film Frank

    Frank is an honest, funny and tender insight into the strange life of a British anti-icon. The innocence of making art is strongly juxtaposed with the corruption of 'making it big' perfectly. Jon Ronson lovingly retells what it is to be a true musician, to peak in creativity and to plateau in self awareness. A life lesson for those seeking to make art imitate life. Phenomenal soundtrack too.

  • Artemis's rating of the film Frank

    Only Fassbender could display so much emotion wearing a giant plastic head.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Frank

    Underneath the quirky exterior, far beyond the fake-out trailer and marketing of this film as a comedy (it isn't), lies a deeply sensitive film about the pain of being an artist.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Frank

    "I know. You want to call bullshit. I did too. Then I got past my bias and let the movie wash over me.... Fassbender is a marvel at using gesture, posture and intonation to reveal the joys and fears percolating under a mask's fixed gaze. Funny, touching and vital, the movie emerges as a hymn to the healing power of art." - Pete Travers, Rolling Stone

  • Thomas's rating of the film Frank

    This was an unexpected surprise. An extremely touching, heartbreaking story depicting a short period in a young man's life, where he runs a gamut of emotional infatuation, self-discovery, failure and acceptance... in an experimental avant-garde setting. The artists [band] guiding and testing him through this significant journey manage to never feel clichéd, but provide a basis for some genuinely dark undertones.
