10 thoughts on...Frank

  1. What an exciting departure for Lenny Abrahamson. This isn't quite the comedy that many had claimed it to be (although it's definitely not without its many laughs!) but it is definitely a world away from the tragic tone of his previous feature films. He's a fascinating filmmaker. 
  2. Domhnall Gleeson is a star. And Star Wars is a deserved recognition of this. Lets just hope he doesn't forget to balance that work with films of this nature too.
  3. The music by Stephen Rennicks is pitch perfect in its strange, unhinged quality.
  4. Is this an Irish film? (I'd say yes.)
  5. How many actors would be so impressive with a large mask covering their whole face? Michael Fassbender (as usual) does good. 
  6. Maggie Gyllenhaal gives her best performance with a role that could have seemed stereotypical in its aloof kookiness. Which makes me think...
  7. ...Abrahamson has such a good eye for casting and talent with actors.
  8. I can't wait for Room.
  9. I'm less inclined to use social media now.
  10. What a beautiful ending. No?
