Frank wrote about movies for MSN from 2005 to 2013. Everything from interviewing Nicolas Cage to listing gay movies straight people would enjoy to shaming the worst hairdos in cinema history.
During his eight-year tenure, Frank wrote over a hundred features. He wrote about B*A*P*S whenever it was appropriate. Sometimes he wrote about B*A*P*S when it wasn't appropriate at all.
Due to a design overhaul at MSN, all of Frank's work has disappeared into the digital ether. He would be happy to send you some pieces if you're interested.
From 2007 to 2010, Frank wrote for the now defunct go2 Media city guide. He covered the most exciting arts, food, and gay events in NYC for smartphone users.

From 2006 to 2009, Frank covered the Seattle International Film Festival for the Seattle Weekly. He saw 90ish films in 5ish weeks every year. That's a lot of sitting around and reading subtitles.
