Michael Fassbender has taken on a number of controversial roles (Shame, anyone?), but this one is a whole other ball of wax. He plays the title character in Frank, the talented and eccentric leader of a pop band featuring the cantankerous Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). When Jon (Domhnall Gleeson) joins up, he quickly realizes this is no ordinary group. If only Frank would take his giant papier-maché head off and stop verbally explaining his facial expressions, they could actually be famous. I'm kind of obsessed with this dark comedy already, and judging by the positive reviews following Frank's premiere at Sundance, I'm not the only one. The US release date isn't out yet, so just watch the trailer for now.
