Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers


From the awkward, head-scratching, eccentric guy who brought you "Trash Humpers," comes "Spring Breakers" on spring break 2013. Harmony Korine has worked with Chloe Sevigny, Werner Herzog and Samantha Morton, as both writer and director and has been subject to controversy and blacklisting. I personally love the majority of his work and a lot of other people must also. It can't be easy to make a truly bare-bones independent project that can barely be called a movie like "Trash Humpers," then turn right around and get the support to make a big budget oddity starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco.
I've read about it on many different sites but I still can't tell what the hell it's really about. All I know is if it's written and directed by Korine, it's one to watch out for. Apparently Selena Gomez is only in the first half of it, but it's okay because Korine's wife Rachel Korine provides more than enough eye candy to fill the spotlight. She's the raver with the pink hair. If you want to see more of her before this movie premiers, check out Korine's last coherent film "Mister Lonely." She has a small, but memorable role in it.
Spring 2013. Finally a spring break that won't be a drag.
