The life and work of Robert Frank - as a photographer and filmmaker - are so intertwined that they’re one in the same, and the vast amount of territory he’s covered, from The Americans to landmark films like PULL MY DAISY (with the Beats) and COCKSUCKER BLUES (with the Rolling Stones) is intimately registered in his now formidable body of artistic gestures. DON’T BLINK is a fast and fleeting impressionistic imprint of the life of the Swiss-born man who reinvented himself the American way, and is still standing on ground of his own making at the age of 90.
"Films focused on visual artists are a staple of the documentary world, but "Don't Blink — Robert Frank" does things a little differently. Rather than being a film about an artist, it's an attempt to show us what it's like to actually be an artist." - Los Angeles Times
