This movie could make you physically ill.
| Original Score: 0/5
... mostly it just seemed mean, ruthless and designed simply to shock the sensibilities of the squares.
| Original Score: 82/100
The armless cardsharp and the rapping albino are just two of the treasures in this miraculous movie.
| Original Score: 4/4
Most people who see Julien Donkey-Boy will leave the theater disturbed and it will take a special kind of odd-movie aficionado to appreciate the feeling.
| Original Score: 2/4
Julien Donkey-Boy really is an excuse to let Korine go nuts with his jerky video camera as he stitches together a series of completely unrelated and utterly vapid sequences.
| Original Score: 0/4
While julien donkey-boy is neither bourgeois nor romantic, it is often unsettlingly funny, though it ultimately recedes into a dark womb of despair.
| Original Score: C+
Has the look and feel of something unearthed in an archeological dig - a primitive piece of folk art.
It's disappointing that this film doesn't really have a storyline, because the characters have a lot of potential.
| Original Score: 70/100
Julien donkey-boy acquires a spiritual dimension that allows it ultimately to become an act of redemption.
| Original Score: 4/5
Julien Donkey-Boy, a nihilistic bit of crap that wants to be oh-so-cool but is really just a low-budget exploration of nothing.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Donkey-Boy exists in an uneasy space between documentary, improvisation, and fictional narrative, and often makes one suspect that Korine may be exploiting his oddball cast.
| Original Score: 2/4
The sophomore directorial effort of Harmony Korine is one steaming, smelly pile of cinematic excrement.
This in-your-face film is about attitude.
| Original Score: C
julien donkey-boy is fascinating viewing for a movie that has nothing to say and nowhere to go.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Julien feels like it could go blow up at any time. It implodes instead, and the meltdown, though visible in one of the final sequences, is still corrosive.
| Original Score: C-
Projects such as Julien exist not to explore the essentials of a film, but to induce in audiences a kind of critical vertigo.
The picture is so personal to the filmmaker, so lacking universality and general interest to a diverse audience, that it might as well be a home movie shown to bored uncles and aunts.
| Original Score: 5/10
Julian Donkey-Boy, a movie so edgy that you'd like to push it off the edge of a cliff.
| Original Score: 1/4
Julien Donkey-Boy is never boring to watch. But it is less than inspired in its subject matter.
Julien donkey-boy is a mess. The story is virtually non-existent and, because of the Dogme restraints, the film is much darker and considerably more grainy than Gummo.
