This movie hurt me...badly
This movie hurt me...badly. The basic concept of this sort of war epic about an imaginary eastern European country, Bolbovia, and their imaginary language, Bolbovian, was not the problem. That lay within the painful reality of what Frontier is. The Zellner Bros. aren't void of talent but by the time the few wonderfully absurd moments arrive the rest of the film has simply beat the desire to laugh out of you. Frontier comes off as a bunch of kids having fun out in the woods, except the audience isn't let in on the joke and while I totally understand why they would film it, I don't understand wanting an audience to watch. In the end it just left me wanting to see Wiley Wiggins in more films... hopefully good films (in addition to the GREAT waking life) and a more developed project from the zellner bros. Who despite Frontier seem to have (hopefully) more enjoyable and promising works ahead.
