Brilliant, amazing, and perfect in every way.
"Frank's Book" is one of those shorts that was made with great care, and that care shines right through the camera in R.A. White's film. It revolves around Frank, an office slave who sits alone in an empty hall, with nothing to do but sit and stare at his prized notebook. Throughout the film, we see Frank's daydreams. They mostly consist of him fantasizing about how great his book is. Despite all that, it seems he can't muster up the courage to write anything in it. Frank's emotions and thoughts are displayed perfectly by John C. Reily, who pulls this one off with an almost silent performance. Brilliant cinematography, brilliant acting (along with a cameo by Tencaious D), and most important, a brilliant ending that actually makes you smile, something that a lot of films fail to do these days. SEE "FRANK'S BOOK".
