The sound and the fury 2014
The Sound and the Fury by William FaulknerThe Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by history and legacy, the character’s voices and actions mesh to create what is arguably Faulkner’s masterpiece and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century.
The Sound And The Fury
Faulkner's novel describes the decline and fall of the Compson family of Jefferson, Mississippi over 20 years at the beginning of the last century. Here, Franco attempts to recreate the book's impressionistic style and complex structure. He makes a fist of it, but in concentrating so much on the art he fails to give the viewer any story or characters to care about. Franco himself plays Benjy Compson, the youngest child of the clan, from whose point of view the opening third of the story is told. This poses the first challenge for both actor and director as Benjy has mental health problems, unable to express himself in anything other than an ursine roar. In Faulkner's text the reader is allowed into Benjy's mind of course, but on screen we must deduce his feelings from the outside. Franco uses elucidatory flashbacks to do this; Benjy watching something he shouldn't have, Benjy hugging a wedding dress.

In the second, the fragile intellectual Quentin Compson Jacob Loeb commits suicide during his freshman year at Harvard. On the page, her character attains an almost mythic resonance; onscreen, she comes across as a central-casting Southern belle from some lesser Tennessee Williams play. The more straightforward final section presents more of a standard Southern Gothic vibe, but Haze plays Jason as an almost cartoonish pantomime villain. Relying on handheld cameras and claustrophobic close angles, Franco does attempt some Terrence Malick-style dream imagery to help finesse the jumps from past to present, sometimes successfully.
