Movie Info

Ike Jerome, a 24-year-old architecture student inspired by the few films he has seen, rides the bus into Hollywood. Jerome is almost autistic (later, his friend dubs him a "cineautistic") in his interactions with the world. With a tattoo of Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor as they appear in A Place in the Sun (a film that plays an important role in the plot) on his shaved head, he makes an impression on the people around him. Soon breaking into film as a designer and eventually a film editor, Vikar (as he is nicknamed) begins a dreamlike journey into the world of films that eventually ends in tragedy and almost horrific discovery.

  • Your mileage may vary. Clearly, "Zeroville" is not a film for everyone. But if you love movies and you're willing to experiment, it's an enjoyable trip.

    Sep 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There are no ideas to engage with and no one to like.

  • Not entirely satisfying, but Franco's direction is assured, and he builds a compellingly noirish mood of faded glamour and churning trouble.
