James Franco United States, 2013

Ryan Robinson's rating of the film As I Lay Dying

There's hardly 5 minutes of footage in this that doesn't use split-screen, slow motion, or that doesn't break the 4th wall. Franco is trying to emulate Faulkner's peculiar writing style, but he alienates his audience without adding anything to the film (and losing all the greatness of the source material). Probably the worst of 2013.
