So a few weeks back I caught a trailer on Hulu for the new James Franco directorial attempt based on a Cormac McCarthy short novel. It's a story about a backwoods Tennessean in the 50's who becomes increasingly savage and violent. It looked interesting and I made a mental note to keep an eye out for it.
Today I took a look at the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
...it's not getting good ones. 36 percent rating so far...and falling.
Two of my favorite review synopses:
What did we do to deserve James Franco?
Time and again I found myself looking at a wobbly shot of somebody's slouched shoulder, or a not-very-interesting left ear, wondering what information, exactly, these visuals were intended to convey.
I guess I'll just stick with No Country for Old Men for my McCarthy fix.
