Wickedly funny and full of heart
16 June 2011 | by ingridpriceSee all my reviews

"Mockumentary" is a tough genre to pull off well. Epileptic camera work and straight-to-the-lens commentary only goes so far. It takes great writing and terrific performances to make it work, which is why I give this movie absolutely top marks. An incredibly talented cast, with superb direction by Ben Hyland, puts FRONTMAN on my "must- see" list. This band of aging rockers, fumbling hilariously towards their make-it-or-break-it performance, totally won my heart. I was with them every step of the way. And here's the icing on the cake: the music's great! Music videos salted throughout the film are good enough to stand alone. They're also humorous, affectionate homages to the genre. FRONTMAN is excellent. See it any way you can.
