I thought this looked rather unique and interesting. The cast alone is enough to make you interested. The plot itself is rather intriguing and fresh. The acting is phenomenal especially from Michael Fassbender. The music is unique and different. Maggie Gyllenhaal places against type I think, however she is still in the vicinity of strange that she tends to be cast for. The characters are flawed an... read more

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Michael Fassbender, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out ot be a really weird mix between 'Frank Sidebottom', a character created by Chris Sievey, and Daniel Johnston, a doomed musical artist who was supposedly a genius but who was also seriously mentally ill.

A good movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Michael Fassbender, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out ot be a really weird mix between 'Frank Sidebottom', a character created by Chris Sievey, and Daniel Johnston, a doomed musical artist who was supposedly a genius but who was also seriously mentally ill. To be honest, I have to admit that I had never heard of Frank Sidebottom before watching this movie but, except for the head, this movie didn't have much to do with this comic character. On the other hand, I was well aware of who Daniel Johnston was/is and the connection was really obvious. In fact, exactly like Johnston, I never had the feeling that Frank was such a musical wonder and, except for a few tunes which ” read more

" 6.18Frank is a musical odyssey unlike any other. A rich character study. Domhnall Gleeson stars as a wanna-be but otherwise, talented musician and songwriter who joins an eclectic indie pop band headlined by an enigmatic frontman in a balloon cartoon mask, the titular Frank, performed by Michael Fassbender, who only gets revealed late late in the movie.  A really fun trip about creative process of music.  "

" Netflix- 1hr. 35min. First Viewing Smart, quirky movie with an excellent cast. Warning though; don't go in expecting a flat-out comedy. Frank, while hilarious in some spots, is an incredibly bittersweet film, with a surprisingly sad ending. Tonally, the movie gets a bit mixed up every now and again, and the movie loses a fair amount of its steam in the final act, but the movie is ultimately worthwhile, with subtle writing/direction, and superb acting from the whole cast (especially Gleeson and "
