Frank Premieres at Sundance Film Festival (updated)

Lenny Abrahamson's Frank debut in the Ones-to-Watch series last night in Utah at the Sundance Film Festival. Michael Fassbender was not in attendance, but other cast was there including Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scoot McNairy. As per many comments from Twitter, a lot of people really liked Frank. And the audience was given their own Frank masks to wear, which they did as the film hit the screen.

Updated: Read Guy Lodge's review 'Michael Fassbender loses his head in Fascinating comedy, Frank'.

Here are some of the reactions from people who saw Frank:

Some people will love FRANK. Some people will hate it. The ones who hate it will be wrong.
FRANK: truly original musical artifact. Goofy/weird/continually surprising. Not for everyone, but lovers will love w/ a passion
FRANK is a masterpiece. An absolute masterpiece. We're all flipping out. Seeing FRANK was worth the altitude sickness. 
Frank - Wacky, absurd, but fun musical mayhem. Goes to some crazy places, including SXSW, but uniquely enjoyable. Nothing like it.

So there you have it. Go to this link to read an interview with Lenny to learn more about Frank. It looks  like Michael is in yet another very interesting film and I look forward to seeing it!
