About the Movie

"A portrait of a quintessential New York artist" (The New York Times) and "irascibly entertaining" (Village Voice), DON'T BLINK is a documentary about Robert Frank, the legendary photographer and filmmaker behind the seminal book "The Americans" and landmark films like PULL MY DAISY (with Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg) and C***SUCKER BLUES (with the Rolling Stones). Directed by his longtime editor Laura Israel, the film is an exuberant and fascinating journey into the images and words of an iconoclastic artist, a Swiss-born man who reinvented himself the American way, and is still standing on ground of his own making at the age of 90. The soundtrack features Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, White Stripes, Yo La Tengo, Tom Waits, and more.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Ms. Israel executes a biographical sketch that is informative without seeming unduly invasive. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 12, 2016

Rotten: It's a unique, associative blend of sounds and images that aims to convey details as well as underlying truths about Frank's life. Unfortunately, it also often leaves one feeling aesthetically pummeled to the point of exhaustion. – Nick Schager, Variety, Jul 12, 2016

Fresh: Frank insists "I'm not a verbal man. I have nothing to reveal. It's all in the work, I hope." Honoring that sentiment is what this very personal film is all about. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jul 28, 2016

Fresh: The legendary creator of the seminal photography book The Americans and such cult film classics as Pull My Daisy and Candy Mountain makes for a highly engaging commentator in Don't Blink: Robert Frank. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 12, 2016

Absolutely loved this film

If you love his photography you will rent or buy this without even reading a review. If you're not sure who Robert Frank is, then this is the best way to find out. You won't be disappointed.

Loved it!

I loved this film! I am an enormous Robert Frank fan so it was a real treat to watch. I've actually seen it three times in theaters, twice to NYC and once in Pennsylvania where I got to meet Laura Israel after a Q&A. A great film about a great artist! And the soundtrack is amazing too!

A great film about a true photographic master.

A great look inside the life and work of the 20th Century's most important photographer. Frank is somewhat elusive, so this is a golden opportunity to see the man up close and personal. I must also note, the soundtrack is killer.
