My feelings on James Franco are well known, and I’m aware that some of you think that when it comes to JFrancs, I’m just some intolerant harpy, shaking my first in the air and cursing the various venerable degree-granting institutions he attends. If that’s how you feel, no hard feelings, skip ahead to the next post. The rest of us? We need to talk about something. James Franco is now trying to remake “Psycho.” With himself as Janet Lee.
Franco’s Psycho Nacirama is on view right now at London’s Pace Gallery, but just in case you can’t go, here’s an essay Franco wrote about it. His closing words say it all: “What’s my motivation? I’m just trying to get to the core of these weird recreations we call the movies.” He’s such a philosopher! [Guardian]
