Quotes

The Mechanic: And so... All that was left was the man and the devil... trapped in the writer's creation. It was then the man realized he was no man, but a thing. Written... by a malevolent God. The only choice that could truly be his own would be to take his own life. But the devil was no puppet. And the writer would not write him, and if the writer were to trap him in this house the devil would tear the house down.

A Highly Original Work of Art.
22 November 2014 | by filazafer-167-882100See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of Jamin Winan's film "Ink" so I have been waiting for "The Frame" for awhile. After seeing it I wasn't disappointed, even if it doesn't top "Ink." This movie has much better acting and is overall of higher visual quality, but the story is much slower and probably could have benefited from a little more editing.

I do think that Winans is the most original film maker in the game right now. He reminds me of Christopher Nolan and I would love to see what he could do with a blockbuster budget. The main area where his movies fall short is in the acting department. While the main characters are played by good actors, some of the smaller roles are played by people that simply aren't good.

Overall, this movie is completely original and doesn't fit into any category. Even if someone's review gave away the whole story you would have to see it for yourself to understand. This is a movie that is going to mean something different for every person that watches it, but it's not for everyone. Winan's movies are dream-like and some people will prefer a more straight forward story. But, I think the movie is beautiful. Winan's visuals and music are always stellar. I am already looking forward to his next project, whatever that may be.
