Trivia

Goofs

When Frank falls on stage during the performance at SXSW, we can see he hits the head on the left side. When Jon goes to help him, the head is fractured on the left. But on the next shot, and in the following scenes at the motel, the fracture is now on the right side of the head. See more »

Lovely love story
8 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

The movie has engaging, funny and moving.It also made me jump more than any horror movie ever has. It has some wonderful scenes that made me laugh out loud and the direction is just beautiful with some truly clever touches. The comedy is effortless, the dialogue is smart but not pretentious, the performances are elegant and understated. Fassbender is great and the head thing really works for him Frank is a hard film to easily define and although it manages to remain on the right side of upbeat with plenty of laughs it does gently broach issues revolving around mental health. The exploits of the band trying to make a album touch on notions of artistic endeavour, originality and the sphere that songwriters and musicians have to encounter in trying to be creative
