what a terrible advertisement for a lackluster film and a shlock performance. james franco is an egomaniac and a putz who redefines over-entitled douche bag. everything he does is gimmicky and superficial–designed to curry favor for himself with the least possible risk. he has skirted through various grad programs by gaming the systems, not attending classes, and receiving special favors from administrators to get out of work because he’s famous and doing other projects. his films travel the same kinds of weak territory and, worse still, this fucking straight guy has the nerve to fake around within gay people’s lives (like his leather culture ripoff film project) without actually doing anything substantive or sustainable to help LGBT people. i hope he wins that oscar so he can sit on the goddamn thing hard and fast and bleed out.
