    Child Of God

    A dispossessed, violent man';s life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.

  • Critic Reviews of "Child Of God"

    August 03, 2014

    Beautifully shot, well acted, and the score is lovely, but the film has nothing to say about the human degradation in which it wallows. If you're gonna make me smell dung for two hours, at least fertilize my lawn.

    There's no denying Franco's ambition, and in "Child of God" you can see evidence (almost for the first time) that he's reaching for something he may one day attain.

    Los Angeles Times

    "Child of God" fascinates like a song sung just out of tune but rhythmically sturdy enough to keep you listening in the hopes it'll right itself.

    New York Magazine/Vulture

    Surprisingly pretty good.

    A good faith but blank retelling of McCarthy's first major statement.

    USA Today
    July 31, 2014

    This wrong-headed adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's taut 1973 novel, as interpreted by director James Franco, spends too much time trying to create an element of compassion for this devilishly aberrant killer.

    Child of God toes the line between success and failure - but, ultimately, leans into success, and occasionally threatens to leap into it entirely.

    Epoch Times
    June 13, 2016

    Ultimately the movie's message is that community is sacred, all God's children should be cared for, and the destitute need a human net to save them from descent into madness.
    October 31, 2014

    ... certainly not for all tastes, but as a raw and visceral portrait of sexual and social defiance, it conveys a powerful glimpse into backwoods desperation and survival instincts.

    Film Comment Magazine
    September 15, 2014

    With Child of God, Franco has come up with something distinctive that both captures the atmosphere of McCarthy's neo-Gothic universe and suggests a consolidation on the director's As I Lay Dying.

    August 10, 2014

    James Franco should be hailed for taking a crack at such dense and unforgiving material, but the relentless grimness leaves you numb rather than enlightened.

    For obvious reasons too, it's a tough undertaking to endear sociopaths, serial killers and their ilk as something more, something human.
