2.0 out of 5 stars Trying hard to be clever, 15 Sep 2011
This review is from: Franklyn [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
From seeing the trailer I was expecting a lot more. The three stories that are supposed to be connected are quite boring, and it's not entirely clear what connects them. It seems to me that the filmmakers were trying a bit too hard to to make a mysterious film in the mould of Donnie Darko, but it just doesn't really cut it. The 'fantasy' element is poorly delivered and completely goes against the tone of the rest of the film - a little more subtlety and a lot less CGI and it would have made an interesting twist and might have made it easier to follow and a lot less frustrating when you discover it's all just the delusional fantasies of a very two-dimensional character.
