Roger EbertFull Review Good ...what a thorough pleasure to be in the company of "Frankie,” a film that feels like a sumptuous beach read on a lazy sunny afternoon. ..."Frankie” generously eulogizes an undaunted woman living the conclusive chapter of her life in a changing world, ready for her final close-up.
Rolling StoneFull Review Average ...the film stubbornly resists coming together as more than a series of hit-and-miss vignettes. Only near the end, in a stunning tableau that illustrates how individual desire laughs at the plans of God — and the ringmaster Frankie — does Sachs turn his wisp of film into something funny, touching and vital.
Slant MagazineFull Review Above Average Frankie is a film about spoiled, or spoiling, encounters, and the ways in which so many fundamental encounters are actual mis-encounters, or non-consensual confrontations. From the most consequential of them all—death's ill-timed knocking—to the most ordinary disaccords between lovers seemingly intent on proving that non-reciprocal love is the only kind of love there is.
