Frank & Lola Review

1 post in this topic

Matthew Ross' feature directorial debut, Frank & Lola, revolves around a couple who is desperately in love and whose relationship is almost always on the rocks. Any outside observer of the couple would suggest that the two immediately end whatever it is they have going on. The movie, which is also written by Ross, is never able to bring the audience close enough into the characters' points of view to see it differently. Instead, those watching are treated to two people lying to one another, acting horrifically to those around them, and perpetuating a constant sense of doom.

First, there is Frank (Michael Shannon), a chef who moved to France at a young age, worked his way up in kitchens, and is now in Vegas trying to make it big. Then, there's Lola (Imogen Poots), an aspiring designer who just finished school and is looking for that initial big break. The two meet, begin dating, and things fall apart. It is a little difficult to determine just how long it takes for the whole thing to go bad—and there is a series of confusing back-and-forth time jumps which exist, presumably, to convince the audience that at one time the couple loved each other—but things do go bad.
