JAMES FRANCO: 40 MINUTES
Jamie Cakes has a film, 40 Minutes, that will be hitting the festivals soon.
Back story: Famed director William (The Exorcist, The French Connection) Friedkin made a film in 1980 called Cruising with Al Pacino. Friedkin cut 40 minutes of the film.
Jamie Cakes has imagined what those 40 minutes would contain. In film studies, would we call this interpretation a fictional documentary, Jamie Cakes??
Chatter/buzz says this is Jamie Cakes' porn film. So silly, because Franco doesn't even get naked.
There is just enough of Jamie Cakes without the audience asking where is he, but not too much of Franco, where the audience is saying he is distracting from the flick.
