Fanastic ! it really is .. not Bobbins in slightest

A heartfelt document about the comic genius that created an icon that became his Frankenstein's monster. This is an incredible film given the source material of hundreds of old cassette tapes and video recording all of which destined for the skip. This is clearly a labour of love made by fans and maybe just for fans, the tragedy id Chris Sievey never got the recognition for the awesome work whether be musically and artistically.

I can't recommend this enough, especially want to about more about the man behind the mask or even if you never heard of Frank

A beautiful tribute that Chris and Frank would've been proud of

Late 80s. My mates Baz and Bert kept going on about "I've got a papier-mâché head". I didn't know what they were on about. I was a normal teenager - not yet exposed to the wonderful world of the non-mainstream. So I knew more about FS through association rather than anything else. My interest grew further when, on my own in Budapest and craving any English language film, I went to an indie cinema and watched the wonderfully emotional film 'Frank' starring Michael Fassbender as a semi-fictional character loosely based on Chris Sievey's alter-ego FS. 'Frank' was written by Jon Ronson, who was in one of Chris' early bands, and also appeared, as himself, in this documentary. I'd say, if you get the chance, watch 'Being Frank: The Chris Sievy Story' and then 'Frank' the fictional tribute, as a wonderfully weird, poignant and, ultimately beautiful double bill portrayal of this wonderful anti-establishment artist. Both Chris and Frank would approve.

PS - I watched this film at the Brixton Curzon and I was the only person in the theatre. Upstairs, there was a stand up comedy night - and I heard no laughing. Probably hardly anyone there either. If this film gives us any message, it's don't worry about the audiences - just stay true to yourself.

Funny, moving, upsetting and brilliant

Saw this at the Glasgow Film Festival. Im a 90s music and comedy fan from the north west of england and was a Frank Sidebottom fan. But the man behind him was so much more interesting and that is the true achievement of this film . A complex character who was a true creative whose talents were way beyond what he became famous for. Was so interesting to hear his wife and family talk... lovely people who inspired him

go see even if you are not a frank sidebottom fan.
