Directed by James Franco, who also stars as Darl Bundren, As I Lay Dying will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. Based on the 1930 classic by William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying, which was filmed in Canton Mississippi, is the story of the death of Addie Bundren and her family's quest to honor her wish to be buried in the nearby town of Jefferson.

The Broken Tower, the Hart Crane biopic writen, directed, and starring James Franco, was released this week and can now be downloaded or viewed on demand. There's been a lot of speculation about the film ever since Franco aquired the rights to Paul Mariani's biography of the same title, but at least one critic isn't impressed. Writing in Slate, Evan Hughes called the film "incredibly dull."
