  • Summary: This documentary examines U.S. Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.), one of America's most well loved and outspoken politicians. It is also an unprecedented and surprisingly candid look at sexuality and politics at the end of the 20th Century. (Bart Everly)

  1. There's nothing new here, but Frank provides a genial reminder that politics doesn't always have to take the low road.

    A fascinating portrait of an era, as well as of a unique public servant.

    Let's Get Frank is hardly frank enough.
  4. Squanders its potentially rich possibilities.
  5. Has no interest in exploring Mr. Frank's family background or love life. This frustrating lack of context leaves you wanting a lot more in the way of texture.
  6. 30
    Everly tries to patch together a profile out of borrowed news clips and shoddy videography. In the process, Frank's charisma and force never emerge.
