Road Review

image

The precarious sport of motorcycle road racing and the Dunlop name have been synonymous with one another, not least of all in Northern Ireland, for almost forty years. Brothers Joey and Robert Dunlop rose to stratospheric heights of reverence and fame within the world of road racing, and Robert’s sons William and Michael followed in their father’s footsteps as world-class motorcyclists, still active and thriving in the sport today. Narrated with powerful solemnity by Liam Neeson, Road is an exhilarating and probing documentary from first time writer-director team Michael Hewitt and Dermot Lavery.

Just who is Frank? This is the principal preoccupation of Dublin-born filmmaker Lenny Abrahamson’s most ambitious feature to date. Well, Frank is different. Frank is inventive. Frank is complicated. Frank is weird. Frank is likeable. Frank is sad. Frank is an enigma. All of these descriptions are not only applicable to the title character, but also the film itself.
