Visual Library Catalogue: The Last Days of Frankie the Fly

Bought a while ago at the Red Cross shop for £2.00. Frankie the Fly is a middle-aged, mild-mannered, middle-management, Mafia guy, who runs a film studio producing porn for the Mob. His psychopathic boss despises and publicly humiliates him. Frankie wants to make more artistic porn, and so does his starlet, who dreams of being a real actress. So they decide to make their film without the boss knowing. What could possibly go wrong…

I bought this DVD because Dennis Hopper plays Frankie the Fly, but the film has a fine ensemble cast, including Daryl Hannah as Margaret, the wannabe actress. A sweet and touching black comedy that’s also horrifically violent in places.
