Movie Reviews

  • James Franco's "Zeroville" ruins a great book about the mythic power of the movies; As a book, Zeroville was a profound and intoxicating testament to the mythic power of images. As a movie, Zeroville is a compelling reminder to spend more time reading
    Review rate : D by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • James Franco goes for broke -- and misses -- in this ambitious adaptation of Steve Erickson's 1970s film industry satire, winding up with a misplaced romance instead
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • it's not entirely satisfying, but Franco's direction is assured, and he builds a compellingly noirish mood of faded glamour and churning trouble
    by Sheri Linden [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • fun at times, but scattered and confused through most of it, "Zeroville" is an interesting entry in Franco's running obsession with Hollywood and outsiders. Though it's something of a miss, it's certainly no zero, though
    Review rate : C by Warren Cantrell [The Playlist ]
  • adapts a 2007 novel of the same name about the mysticism of the movies.. James Franco seems to be aiming for comedy, but there are few laughs to be had
    Review rate : D by Sara Stewart [New York Post ]
  • "Zeroville" is not a film for everyone. But if you love movies and you're willing to experiment, it's an enjoyable trip
    4 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • "Zeroville" is caught between comedy, messy cinephilia and directorial excess; James Franco's bizarre adaptation of Steve Erickson's novel has lots of intriguing parts, but they don't come together
    2 of 5 by Norman Wilner [NOW Toronto ]
  • "Zeroville" is a project unapologetically made for film geeks; It's disappointing that a story meant to celebrate our relationship with film results in a recommendation to just read the book
    3 of 5 by Tara McNamara [Common Sense Media ]
