The Trailer for James Franco’s Film Adaptation of As I Lay Dying Is Pretty Unremarkable

Books, Film, Literature, Writers

All of this seems so terribly ill-advised. The book is great—not Faulkner’s greatest, but it has a linear trajectory that I do think is filmable—but this trailer seems to portray a pale imitation of someone else’s vision of what a Faulkner film might look like (no, I don’t know what that sentence means exactly, other than this film looks like a bad riff on Faulkner).
