Our old site guru John reviewed Ink back in 2009 and gave it a rare four and a half out of five stars, refering to it as a film that “combines beautiful special effects with a large world and a very personal story of redemption into something that really is special.” Andrew and Matt spoke with Winans and star Chris Kelly at Flyway that year and praised it for its great story.
And indeed, it was special. It did have a great story. Flaws aside (what micro-budget film doesn’t have them?), it ended up as one of my ten favorites of the year.
So, it comes as a surprise to me that I missed the release of director-writer-composer Jamin Winans’s latest film, The Frame, which appears equally poetic, strange, and enjoyable.
I haven’t watched it yet, but I’m fairly confident that when I do this weekend, it’s going to be great. So, while you await my review, you can (and should) like the film’s Facebook page. Then you should go here and purchase it. While you’re at it, you should probably revisit Ink, by clicking here and spending a couple well-deserved dollars.
