A corrupt, junkie cop with Borderline Personality Disorder attempts to manipulate his way through a bid to secure a promotion in order to win back his wife and daughter while also fighting his own borderline-fueled inner demons.
A clerk in a government agency finds his unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and seductive with women.
In the movie Filth (2013) there is a scene when Bruce (James McAvoy) stops watching a porn movie, the TV is playing Frank (Chris sievey's frank sidebottom) a show that has become this movie with the same name: Frank (2014). Michael Fassbender is who plays the infamous Frank. James McAvoy and Fassbender are respectively Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: First Class (2011) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). See more »
As the band are in the van driving to the ferry terminal they are shown at a road junction with signs indicating that it is at the A55 and M6 taking a turn off for North Wales. The M6 heads North from the Midlands to Cumbria and at no point is there a junction with the A55 which runs from Chester to Holyhead (where the ferry terminal from Wales to Ireland departs).

I never thought that anything remotely connected to Frank Sidebottom would leave me feeling angry but I can't remember the last time I was so offended by a movie. I'm appalled at the way this film has tried to connect itself with the real Frank Sidebottom in any way, it's like some kind of hideous nightmareish American 'profound' version of Frank Sidebottom, tacked onto some cooler-than-thou hipster flick ...totally and utterly wrong from every angle. Frank Sidebottom was a true one-off, and this attempt to hijack his legacy and re-package it for a twitter/facebook obsessed twenty-something market is preposterous. Now I need to go and listen to my Radio Timperley cassettes on full volume and sing Guess Whose Been On Match Of The Day at the top of my voice for an hour just to get this abomination out of my head. As the great man himself would put it, absolutely bobbins.
Perhaps we can look forward to the sequel, "Frank 2". Based on the life of Frank Zappa, starring Danny Dyer doing his best 'Danny Dyer' voice in the title role?
