‘Frank’ Review

12 May 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Fassbender, Domnhall Gleeson, Scoot Mcnairy, Maggie GyllenhaalTess Harper, Hayley Derryberry, Mark Huberman | Written by Jon Ronson, Peter Straughan | Directed by Lenny Abrahamson

Frank, the latest film from the supremely promising Lenny Abrahamson, is perhaps one of the most passive-aggressive films ever made. A film which brings people in with the promise of Michael Fassbender only to have him wear a giant Frank Sidebottom head throughout. A film which seems to have been given permissions and access by the oh-so-hip SXSW festival and the titan of social media, Twitter, only to have the film acidically mock and berate those who attend and use them respectively. A film that casts the likeable Domnhall Gleeson as our narrator through its crazy journey only to have him succumb to ever higher levels of being an awful human being, albeit one who feels like he could be just like many members of the audience (hey, »

Fassbender In New Pics From Musical Comedy ‘Frank’

3 February 2014 11:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Michael Fassbender is truly unrecognisable in his latest role as Frank, a papier-mache-headed singer. Keyboardist Jon (Domhnall Gleeson) soon joins Frank’s band and finds himself on a strange adventure of music and comedy. Based on the character of Frank Sidebottom, the cult comedic personality created by Chris Sievey, the film is said to be based on Sievey’s life but also has a fictional element to it. It’s already received some glowing reviews from the festival circuit and as these stills seem to suggest, it’s going to be a fun and celebratory mix of music and comedy.

Frank is released in the UK on 2nd May. It stars Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy, Tess Harper, and Hayley Derryberry.

First Frank Clip Online

16 January 2014 3:13 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Weird indie band experiments? Safe words? Michael Fassbender in a large papier-mâché head? It can only be Frank, and the frankly barmy first clip is online courtesy of The Playlist. With Fassbender choosing to obscure his mug in a Frank Sidebottom-alike head, the story, from The Men Who Stare At GoatsJon Ronson and Peter Straughan, finds Domhnall Gleeson playing Jon, who joins a band led by the eccentric Frank. Loosely based on comedian and musician Chris Sievey (with influences from Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart), Frank tells the story of a group who want to make some truly new music, and go about it in very strange ways.The film comes from Lenny Abrahamson, who last brought us What Richard Did, and promises to deliver much more madness than even the rest of the indie fare as it hits the Sundance Film Festival. With Scott McNairy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, »
