The film gives us a look at the trials and tribulations of The Compson siblings, living in the deep south during the early part of the 20th century. It is told from four different perspectives: the mentally handicapped Benjy Compson, the fragile intellectual Quentin, the vile Jason and his family's old black servant, Dilsey.
Franco probably has eight other things on the go at the moment (among them no fewer than three upcoming directorial features) which could account for why his "The Sound and the Fury" feels like maybe an eighth of a film.
Its surfeit of half-baked film-student flourishes and needless cameos occasionally give it an amateur-hour feel. But Franco nonetheless shows improvement over 2013's "As I Lay Dying," and well, it's hard to fault him for trying.
