Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
A glue-sniffer's reverie and an aestheticized episode of Beavis & Butthead, explicitly and bracingly set up as an act of cinematic vandalism
Gummo aims to be provocatively anti-everything: anti-Christian, anti-feline, non-narrative, unpolished, visually dyslexic, and imaginatively off-putting.
Enfant terrible Harmony Korine makes a bizarre, idiosyncratic directing debut with his uncompromising look at youth alientaion in Middle-America, whose downbeat tone and off-putting imagery should appeal to small minority of viewers.
Harsh, funny, repellent and occasionally quite moving.
| Original Score: 3/4
C'mon, Harmony. Mano a boyo. What are you really trying to prove here?
It's bleak, brutal and redeemed only by Reynolds's outstanding performance.
Directors have been hailed as visionaries for less.
| Original Score: 4/5
Problematic, troubling, dangerous even, but breathtakingly original, and absolutely true to the times. The cutting edge doesn't get any sharper than this.
Korine is the Jerry Springer of this world. He doesn't judge his subjects, he can still identify with them.
Like watching life on the surface of an alien planet
| Original Score: 5/5
Less shocking than utterly boring.
| Original Score: 1/10
Enter Harmony Korine's directorial debut: new trends in discouraging filmmaking.
| Original Score: 1/5
Its an underground wonder.
| Original Score: 4/5
Abounds with strange beauty.
| Original Score: 4/4
Probably the vilest waste of 2 hours of my life.
| Original Score: 0/5
In real life, this town was devastated by a tornado 20 years ago. According to Korine's version of things, it never recovered.
| Original Score: 1/4
revels in the filth and squalor of the worst variations of human existence, without giving any true insight or understanding about the predicaments of its pathetic character
| Original Score: 0/4
If not the single worst film of the decade, at least the worst of the year -- and I saw Tarzan and the Lost City.
| Original Score: 2/10
Korine's trying to offer a radical vision of rotten America, but the whole thing feels warmed over.
Korine's objective is so narrow and mean, and his viewpoint so colored by smug, adolescent condescension, that Gummo comes off like a mean-spirited prank.
| Original Score: 2/4
