| Shocking performance! 4/10
Review: Man, this film is really weird. It's one of those films that is more shocking than good or bad. It's all about one man living in the woods, surviving on next to nothing and is slightly crazy in the head. The movie is definitely original and disturbing in some parts, but it's watchable if you have the stomach for it. It's hard to imagine James Franco writing such a detailed drama which doesn't have much dialogue, but there is enough material to make the movie interesting. The ending could have done with a bit of work, but the performances were excellent and very realistic. Watchable!

Round-Up: I haven't seen the leading character in any other movies, but he has definitely impressed me with his performance in this movie. He really pushed his character to the limit, even though I didn't understand what the hell he was saying half of the time. As usual, they have put James Franco's face all over the poster to sell the movie, but he is only in a couple of scenes which could have been played by anybody. Because the movie is based around one character, there isn't much else I can say about any other performances. In some ways, I was quite impressed with James Franco's direction, but I can't help thinking that his mind is totally out there.

I recommend this movie to people who are into there extremely deep dramas about a man who lives in the wilderness and survives on next to nothing. 4/10
