Robert Frank revolutionized photography and independent film. He documented the Beats, Welsh coal miners, Peruvian Indians, The Stones, London bankers, and the Americans. This is the bumpy ride, revealed with unblinking honesty by the reclusive artist himself.
Robert Frank's "The Americas" won me over as a fan of his work years ago. His images spoke to me as a photographer on a human level. I ventured into the cinema to watch "Don't Blink: Robert Frank" and was led by the hand though the thought process of a man I admire. His keen eye and interest in people not only capture the New York City dirty years but also a slice of the people that made the 70's great and memorable. The soundtrack is kicka$$ but importantly this documentary takes you on a historical journey unfiltered through the eyes of Robert Frank. Kudos to the Director Laura Israel for bringing this brilliant film to the cinema.
