Jon, a young wanna-be musician, discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank.
The scene in which Frank chases Jon whilst trying to hit him with a shovel and yelling "It'll be worth it!" was improvised by Michael Fassbender. Frank was actually just supposed to be running around, not involving Jon in any way.
Frank: Your music's shit...
Several shots, ostensibly showing Frank' s home town in Kansas, show mountains in the background. There are no mountains in Kansas.
The credits roll with colored tiles floating and rotating in the background. At one point for a second, the tiles form Frank's head.
