What About James? Maladies, reviewed.

James Franco in Carter's "Maladies."My review of Maladies, a deeply pretentious, long-shelved character study written by director “Carter” for star James Franco, is up on The Dissolve today. Curiously, Alan Cumming gets billing in the opening credits though he’s in the film for one brief, unmemorable scene. He has less screen time here than he got as the hotel clerk who hits on Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut.
