Brad Coley's slow-paced thriller has a decent cast, but can't draw the viewer into its convoluted, overstuffed mystery.
A complex, engrossing mystery that holds up in repeated viewings.
Complex and possessed of an otherworldly serenity, Frank gets too little screen time; developing his character further might have redeemed this movie.
Why doesn't Wendy Vanden Heuvel do more film? As Clair's cranky cousin Alice, she does more acting with a smirk and a turtleneck than the rest of the cast combined.
A basic-cable-caliber drama in which tragic outsiders harbor obscured small-town secrets and the overconfident belief they're characters in a Eugene O'Neill play.
Don't let its title fool you - Frank The Bastard is a dull, sluggish watch that's as exciting as visiting Maine is in real life.
Dreary New England noir soap about a woman uncovering family secrets is like a would-be supernatural thriller that forgot the magic and the chills.
Well-acted but a task to keep up with.
Ineptly written and flatly directed, the film takes real effort to get through, as it practically dares the viewer to pay attention.
