Blunt Reviews Presents: Frank (2014)


Lenny Abrahamson directs the big screen adaptation of Jon Ronson’s novel of the same name, an obscure comedy that is an odd but enjoyable experience. The film is held together by the central performance from Michael Fassbender as the titular character, who really throws himself head first (pardon the pun) into this complex and somewhat scary character. It’s an interesting look into experimental music, mental health issues, and the idea of becoming famous on your own terms, and I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s well written with a great soundtrack; the true underdog of last year’s comedies.
