Zeroville Reviews

September 23, 2019
This filth grates all the more because the film is so unbearably smug.

To say it is for Franco completists only seems just.

Franco embraces the zero in his title, producing a film that starts to feel like a middle finger to both Hollywood and anyone who searches for meaning in it.
September 20, 2019
As with many of Franco's projects, it seems to have left the station without a script, with the result that entire segments feel half-baked and semi-improvised.

Franco seems to be aiming for comedy, but there are few laughs to be had.

A compelling reminder to spend more time reading.

Unfortunately the production... seldom rises above being a tedious muddle despite its intriguing, cultural crossroads setting.

There are no ideas to engage with and no one to like.

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.

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