"Don't Blink" is a portrait of an artist, a portrait that draws upon Frank's own improvisational approach to filmmaking, but which also manages to capture a life's story, as well as its subject's essence.
The innovative photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank doesn't have much to say for himself in this 2015 documentary profile, but with a career as storied as his, he barely needs to say anything.
Don't Blink is a friendly film by a friend - honest and historically aware, but almost unfailingly affectionate and attuned to the "spontaneous intuition" that, 92 years after his birth, still seems the governing principle of Frank's life.
Frank insists "I'm not a verbal man. I have nothing to reveal. It's all in the work, I hope." Honoring that sentiment is what this very personal film is all about.
As the title seems to advertise, it's a frustrating blur of a movie; the rock 'n' roll soundtrack, however, is terrific.
Ms. Israel executes a biographical sketch that is informative without seeming unduly invasive.
Directed by ... Laura Israel, her background as an editor comes to the fore in the precision with which she combines Frank's photographs, film footage and her own documentary material, providing insight ... in a manner both eloquent and erudite.
Placed in the present and looking back into the past, it is a thoroughly fascinating watch to anyone interested in 20th century American art, literature and photography from this perspective.
An intriguing, messy and off-putting portrait of the influential American photographer and experimental filmmaker Robert Frank.
Archival interviews are marked by combative frustration, but Frank's family life is clearly delineated by his work, and Don't Blink is a study of the dedication, and sometimes selfishness, that's required to pursue an artistic vision.
This documentary film about the life and work of artist Robert Frank is done in the style of a Robert Frank film, a rambling collage of interviews, stories, images and numerous clips of his films.
A turbulent film that doesn't always hit its mark but is consistently interesting in the attempt.
