Venice Film Review: ‘Manglehorn’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When you want subtle and nuanced, Al Pacino isn’t the guy you call. , focused on the kind of eccentric rural Southern character you might expect to encounter in one of Errol Morris’ early documentaries, or among the weathered, life-worn faces who add authenticity as cutaways in one of director David Gordon Green’s own indie features. Personality-wise, this pic feels as scruffy and disheveled as its subject, benefiting from Pacino’s name enough to attract a higher-profile release than a character actor would have in the same part.

Some folks live in the present, and some folks live in the past. That’s equally true of critics, many of whom cling to the memory of Green’s early work — quiet, evocative studies of real, unpretentious souls — despite the studio-comedy career he’s had since “Pineapple Express.” Small-town Texas locksmith A.J. Manglehorn (Pacino) also lives in the past, hung »

New Images Of James Franco, Seth Rogen And Danny McBride In The Sound And The Fury

12 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Franco clearly feels a connection to celebrated author William Faulkner. Last year, he went to the Cannes Film Festival with his adaptation of As I Lay Dying, a project that our reviewers Dominic Mill and Matt Donato called, in turn, “a case of pretention over awareness” and “jumbled.” Now, Franco is taking another Faulkner-derived film to the festival circuit - The Sound and the Fury - and likely hoping for a better reception.

Excitingly, Franco has called on friends and This is the End co-stars Seth Rogen and Danny McBride to join him in the adaptation, which he both directed and starred in. Joey King, Tim Blake Nelson, Ahna O’Reilly, Keegan Allen, Loretta Devine, Scott Haze and Janet Jones all also have roles. Here’s the official synopsis:

Despite his success, and love for comedy, James Franco (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) is slowly making a name for himself as a director of book adaptation, notably the work of Cormac McCarthy and William Faulker, the latter of which is the subject of his latest film, The Sound and The Fury, adapted from the novel by the author.

In addition, and what is becoming a signature of Franco’s directorial efforts, he has called upon his plethora of famous friends, namely Seth Rogen (This Is the End), Danny McBride (Pineapple Express), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou) and Joey King (Oz The Great and Powerful), to help him realise his latest ambitions.

Here’s the official press release, followed by some first look images…
