Sure, it's in essence a love letter to Barney Frank, but from the looks of things, he seems to deserve it.
| Original Score: 3/5
Frustrating lack of context leaves you wanting a lot more in the way of texture.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Between skirmishes in the Capitol, we get a portrait of the congressman as an openly homosexual man, with Everly's agenda much more about Frank's sex life than his politics.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Frank is a worthy subject, but this treatment amounts to not much more than a somewhat extraneous sidebar to last month's The Hunting of the President.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Indiscriminately shot, set to insufferably caffeinated trip-hop, and edited with the superficial pep of a television magazine show, Let's Get Frank conveys its congressional star as a personality, but not quite a character.
Disappointingly slapdash and spotty in its approach.
There's nothing new here, but Frank provides a genial reminder that politics doesn't always have to take the low road.
| Original Score: 3/4
Feisty, funny, and smart.
| Original Score: 4/4
Terrifically entertaining documentary.
Frank, who has been told he should do talk radio, is a natural in front of a camera and microphone, and his ease comes across in Everly's film.
A fascinating, entertaining and well-assembled documentary.
Enjoyable for everyone except those who think Kenneth Starr investigation was actually fair or balanced.
It's a fascinating look at power, prejudice and the way politics is really played.
