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.

C'mon, Harmony. Mano a boyo. What are you really trying to prove here?

Problematic, troubling, dangerous even, but breathtakingly original, and absolutely true to the times. The cutting edge doesn't get any sharper than this.

In real life, this town was devastated by a tornado 20 years ago. According to Korine's version of things, it never recovered.

No conceivable competition [this year] will match the sourness, cynicism and pretension of Korine's debut feature.

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.

Perhaps Gummo was dismissed by many people because it obsessively investigates the gray area between being an object and being an actor in which filmed people necessarily exist.
