Zeroville (2019) - Rotten Tomatoes


Zeroville (2019)



Critic Consensus: Potentially an ironic favorite for cult film fans, Zeroville is a fundamentally misguided -- and descriptively titled -- passion project for its director and star.

Movie Info

Ike Jerome, a 24-year-old architecture student inspired by the few films he has seen, rides the bus into Hollywood. Jerome is almost autistic (later, his friend dubs him a "cineautistic") in his interactions with the world. With a tattoo of Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor as they appear in A Place in the Sun (a film that plays an important role in the plot) on his shaved head, he makes an impression on the people around him. Soon breaking into film as a designer and eventually a film editor, Vikar (as he is nicknamed) begins a dreamlike journey into the world of films that eventually ends in tragedy and almost horrific discovery.

Critic Reviews for Zeroville

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (10)

This filth grates all the more because the film is so unbearably smug.

September 23, 2019 | Full Review…

To say it is for Franco completists only seems just.

September 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Franco embraces the zero in his title, producing a film that starts to feel like a middle finger to both Hollywood and anyone who searches for meaning in it.

September 20, 2019 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…

As with many of Franco's projects, it seems to have left the station without a script, with the result that entire segments feel half-baked and semi-improvised.

September 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Franco seems to be aiming for comedy, but there are few laughs to be had.

September 19, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A compelling reminder to spend more time reading.
