Film Friday: Frank


Plot
: Frank is (very loosely) based upon writer Jon Ronson's memoirs of playing keyboards in Frank Sidebottom's band. In the film Frank chooses never to take off his mask, leading new band member Jon to wonder who's underneath.
Guest appearances: My favourite actor, Scoot McNairy stars in this, hurray! Michael Fassbender dons the head of Frank.
Watch this if you're a fan of.. weird stories about outsider musicians
Fun facts There is a documentary in the works about the real Frank Sidebottom (aka Chris Sievey) which hardcore fans of the musician may prefer
Overall: Although the film started off well with lots of funny moments, it didn't seem to know where it was going and I didn't really enjoy the darker tone of the second half.

  1. I'd like to see this! Chris Sievey stayed at mine once and it was very odd waking up to see Frank's head sat on my dining table!

    1. What a brilliant pic! You should write a blog post about it, I'd love to know more.
