In his latest wacky performance-art stunt, interdisciplinary graduate student James Franco dresses like a man for all two minutes and thirty-nine seconds of the latest trailer for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours, the story of self-amputating outdoorsman Aron Ralston. It’s impressive work. He could win an Oscar for this. Or even a Gertie, the prestigious award given every year to the country’s top performance artist, named for 60s Berkeley professor Gertrude Jenkins-Gold.
“Literally 127 hours of thrills!” -Pete Hammond.
