In “Spring Breakers,” James Franco puts himself out there, takes a huge risk, and succeeds wildly.

He is funny, dangerous, creepy and cute. He pops out of the screen in a movie that’s already popping out of the screen. I had a lot of fun watching him play Alien. There’s a satirical quality to the movie — at its heart, it’s a critique — and Franco knows this and his performance embodies the kind of guy whose life revolves around money, bikinis, sex, partying and nothing else. Alien is someone who loves what he does, which is being bad. James does it perfectly. He can play the Harrison Ford part and the Mickey Rourke part — often within the same performance. That’s hard to come by.
