Incredible portrait of an artist, and the belief of the tortured artist. Fassbender is immensily talented and the music is wonderfully bizarre. Occasionally a bit too in love with its own concept, but if you're already on board it's easy to love.
Inspired. Frank is the kind of film you can watch time after time and always get something new out of it. Beneath this film's outward quirkiness and intentionally questionable musicality, there's an astounding amount of layered characterization and social commentary that almost make this film (as bizarre as it is) seem almost absurdly complex yet profoundly clever. Despite its outward esotericism, Frank turns out to be surprisingly human. Or, at the very least, it's thought-provoking. I highly recommend this film.
cool cast_sometimes it's really funny_but it's totally odd and cool in a way_don't really like the music
