James Franco: actor, writer, director, Oscar host. One thing I love about Franco is that he doesn’t seem to really care what people think about him. They try to laugh him out of Hollywood for everything he does but he keeps creating stuff anyway. He is now working on a film adaptation of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying. Here is his latest foray into video directing, Collapse into Now for REM. It’s a moody meditation on Hollywood decaying at the fringe. I think that’s Lindsay being photographed by porn filter photographer Terry Richardson. The song Blue is great – and if the video did anything it made me download REM’s album.
