As a writer stymied by past success, writers block, substance abuse, relationship problems and a serious set of father issues, Elliott's cracked-out chronicle of a bizarre murder trial amounts to less than the sum of its parts. Not long into the 2007 trial of programmer Hans Reiser, accused of murdering his wife, the defendant's friend Sean Sturgeon obliquely confessed to several murders (though not the murder of Reiser's wife). Elliott, caught up in the film-ready twist and his tenuous connection to Sturgeon (they share a BDSM social circle), makes a record of the proceedings. The result is a scattered, self-indulgent romp through the mind of a depressive narcissist obsessed with his insecurities and childhood traumas.Written by

You remember when you taught me to drive? I was 14. You let me drive out to Warren park in a '69 mustang. I loved that car. You used to take me out, let me drive. I remember feelin' so happy and free, full of hope and potential.

Books on fiction and even more so autobiographical memoirs are always edited,
self edited if you prefer. Even the most brutally frank of memoirs there is always
a part so painful we don't want to tell the world and we hope that no one else is
keeping track to tell it differently. That's what happens to James Franco on another of his quirky projects playing a writer who does his Adderall like peppermint candy.
Franco is covering the trial of wife killer Christian Slater and as the testimony
rolls he sees some of his own life especially in his relationship with his estranged father Ed Harris who sees the same incidents and others he prefers
to remember a bit differently. Franco and Harris have some great scenes
together they are the heart of the film.
Editing our memories is the phenomenon this film chose to explore. If not the
best of explanations it's a valiant attempt.
