Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society. He finds an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement.Written by
One of the TV clips shown is a documentary on mass killer Charles Whitman who famously shot people at random from the University of Texas clock tower. Whitman left a note saying that he thought there was something wrong with his brain and asking for an autopsy to be performed on it after the police killed him. Unlike Frank it was determined he genuinely had a brain tumour and was not responsible for his actions. See more »

So what about you Frank? Did you see that freak on "American Superstars" last night?
Last night; that freak on "American Superstarz."

Bobcat Goldthwait's latest feature as writer & director is a hilarious & articulately written black comedy commentary on contemporary American culture, or lack thereof. Yes, mass media's influence on the devolution of society has been tackled before (Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers & Euros Lyn's Fifteen Million Merits, for example) and the script has it's issues (which are plausibility/suspension of disbelief related IMO) but the dialogue does have monologues & diatribes that I think really do shine. The acting is FTW, and the whole small budget meets meaningful repartee feel of the piece threw me back to Mark Osbourne's 2000 film "Dropping Out". Most definitely catch it if you can! 8D
