I'd say it's pretty awesome, but not a masterpiece.

Frank

I really loved this film. As a member of a band I felt like I could relate to all of the main characters, and I think that it applies to viewers across genres. I really like how they managed to create a protagonist that is sympathetic yet unlikable due to how he affects the plot. Not many films manage that. Worth a watch for sure, just as everyone else has been saying.

EDIT: Come to think of it, the characters are all too complex to characterize as things like relatable or sympathetic.

^ I thought Frank was pretty good, and had a nice message. The musician who wants to be ultra commercial is able to get them gigs and please the crowd but writes songs that are really soulless and unremarkable, while the super abstract band makes music that they themselves really love but nobody will ever get to hear because of their obscurity. A solid musician kinda has to find a balance between those two extremes, between giving the crowd what they want and also creating what they want to create as an artist.

That's what it's about? it sounds interesting.
I once made a thread here about this subject, i think i called it the Rock star game and i asked people which of those 2 musicians they rather be and the majority of people sold out.

That was just kinda what I took away from the movie. I mean, someone else might watch it and come to the conclusion that the super abstract band were in the right, and that music should be uncompromising. But the theme of the movie is really great either way, in that it forces all kinds of musicians to really take a hard look at themselves. It's worth watching, and I definitely think you should check it out sometime (I think it's still streaming on a few sites, like Netflix).

Well I think that the band was in the right to make abstract music (which isn't even abstract half the time tbh), but I don't think that makes Jon the bad guy. He was just naive imo.

It's one of the characters. He's played by Fassbender.

Is he a guy who wears a mask or is that supposed to be his real head?
