A rare portrait of photographer Robert Frank
26 April 2006 | by gsievertSee all my reviews

I am one of the happy few to have seen this documentary on the great photographer Robert Frank. The director Mr. Fox paints a very intimate portrait of his subject, mostly through the use of interviews and archival footage. It turns out that unfortunately, Mr. Frank now feels that he got a little TOO personal, and is allowing the film to be shown only 3 times a year. The irony is, the same thing happened to Robert Frank himself, when he did a documentary on the Rolling Stones in the 70s, called 'Cocksucker Blues'. It subsequently got banned by the Stones, to the great dismay of Mr. Frank. So please, Robert, let this film be widely released. It gives great insight into how one of history's most distinguished photographers thinks. Since this only of interest to admirers of his work, I think it would do no damage to him if it was seen by many - it is definitely worth it. Especially since for all his grumpiness, Mr.Frank exhibits a very charming sense of humor.
