Robot and Frank Sounds Great

Link, Movies

A ringing endorsement for a Sundance film that sounds like something I wish I could watch right now:

Okay, so here’s the pitch: Frank Langella and a robot crack safes. You’d be forgiven for offering a great big “meh.” So please believe me when I say that *Robot and Frank* not only nails all the heartwarming family scenes expected of a Sundance dramedy, but also has great insight into the ethical implications of artificial intelligence and the fractured lucidity of memory.

No trailers online yet, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for this one. Jordan (who deserves extra credit for using the phrase “Kuleshov Effect” in a review) went so far as to say it’ll be tough to beat out for his top 10 of 2012. See you in December.
