News & Interviews for Spring Breakers
Critic Reviews for Spring Breakers
The movie is too calculated to shock. Korine just wants to be the danger he's warning us about.
This strange film by Harmonie Korine will enrage and baffle many. But as a cinematic experience I included it among my top five films when it first came out last year this is a long, mad, fevered reverie that sucks you in and showers you with acid vomit.
Behind the film's vacuous candy-colored outer shell are ambiguous and morally challenging concepts.
For moviegoers looking for sensory overload, this will play particularly well.
Audience Reviews for Spring Breakers
With this unbearable, pointless turd that is all style but no substance, Harmony Korine attests (once again) to what an awful director he is, so obvious about everything that he is incapable of not beating into our heads every single stupid element of his ridiculous idiocy.
Very interesting. Starts off all dumb drunk teens doing dumb drunk things, but soon turns very dark. I would like to watch this again before commenting fully.
Four college students resort to robbery to fund a spring break trip to Florida.
Lacking almost all restraint, director Harmony Korine fashions a didactic drama about hedonism and materialism while including enough skin to make Hugh Hefner blush. Though the film is clearly "artistic" (as opposed to pornographic) with its slow motion shots, fractured narrative, and repeated "poetic" voice-overs, it can't escape the fact that it quickly becomes a parody of itself. Take for example a scene in which Alien shows off his "pad." He says, "Look at my shit" approximately twenty times, and I couldn't resist thinking, "Look at my props department. They found a lot of guns and an oddly shaped bed." A lack of subtlety isn't always necessary, but Spring Breakers goes so over the top that I couldn't stomach the predictable conclusion of its ham-handed plot.
Overall, Harmony Korine may be a fine writer, as evidenced by Kids, but as a director he has much to learn.
