James Franco does Gus Van Sant and tells Film Comment's Gavin Smith

James Franco does Gus Van Sant and tells Film Comment's Gavin Smith why. Chatting after the New York Film Festival screening  of MY  PRIVATE RIV ER. Franco  explains why he took the out-takes Gus gave him from  MY PRIVATE IDAHO  and remixed them to create  MY PRIVATE RIVER. His post-modern queer studies training is  all over his explanation but the remixed reconstruction is fascinating to watch. Franco is so naked in his candor (or ego)that he disarmed the cynics and sneerers at the Walter Reed. and held captive the audience
