Storyline

This stream-of-consciousness live-action comedy is a journey through our hero's to-do list, as he tries to escape his everyday life by moving to Japan. Each episode of Frank Leaves For The Orient deals with another aspect of Frank's attempts to wrap up his life, break up with his girlfriend, quit his job, etc. The action becomes a surreal, rapid-fire, sometimes non-linear story that splits apart and then comes back together.

intriguing foray into escapism
6 October 2003 | by (san antonio) – See all my reviews

I found the six episodes of "Frank Leaves for the Orient" to be quite entertaining. It spoke to the part of each of us that wishes, on occasion, to dodge everything about the lives we have built for ourselves in favor of some great unknown. And by providing a send-up of all the annoying details that would have to worked out in order to make a clean break, it puts the reasons why most of us never go through with such flights of fancy into a sharper perspective.

Were this miniseries available on DVD, I would surely own a copy.
