Film Review: ‘Frank the Bastard’ - Variety

Variety: Like sands through the hourglass, the soap-operatic thriller “Frank the Bastard” drizzles out tiny tidbits of expository information scene-by scene throughout its nearly two hour running time, and when it’s done, one is left with little more than an awareness that a unit of time has elapsed. A Nor’easter Gothic with a strong sense for its coastal Maine setting, but little understanding of how to draw the viewer into a convoluted mystery involving broadly drawn motivations and thinly sketched characters, Brad Coley’s slow-paced, overstuffed genre piece offers a decent cast, but should nonetheless struggle to do much business beyond VOD.

The story is too old to be commented.
