This week we boldly take on the James Franco’s directed CHILD OF GOD from American novelist Cormac McCarthy, if you know his work (The Road, Blood Meridian, No Country for Old Men), then you know the tone… Set in mountainous Sevier County, Tennessee in the 1960s, Child of God tells the story of Lester Ballard, a dispossessed, violent man described as “a child of God much like yourself perhaps.” Ballard’s life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation… Released in the summer of 2013,Child of God was placed for official competition at the 70th Venice International Film Festival and was an official selection of the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival – After its release to the public, it received mainly mixed reviews – from scathing to high praise. Many people who watched the film have gone on to say that “Although they thought it may have been good, they just couldn’t like it, nor would they EVER recommend it”. Franco did however garner a fair amount of “attaboys” from his peers who saw his ability to take on such material for a directorial debut as highly bold and brave… We cap it off with our Top 3 Movie Degenerates, why wouldn’t we?
