  • [New – 11/28] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: James Franco continua nella sua ricerca sperimentale, con questo adattamento del capolavoro di Faulkner, che lascia sostanzialmente freddi, cosi’ com’era avvenuto per il precedente Sal.
  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: Easily one of the least endurable films of the year, As I Lay Dying will be deemed a waste of time by both serious, literate art house moviegoers and those who just like James Franco. It’s clear that creativity has gone into this apparent passion project, but it’s almost as if Franco set out to make a film that could never play in more than two theaters .
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: If this isn’t a deliberate parody of furiously solemn, self-conscious artistic pretension, it’s an accidental one.
  • Don Simpson @ Smells Like Screen Spirit
    • Excerpt: James Franco’s attempt to do the impossible is admirable to say the least. His choice in narrative form is not nearly as complex as the source material, but it does make for a challenging cinematic experience nonetheless.
