Trash Humpers (2010)

Trash Humpers



Critic Consensus: It's oddly affecting in a deeply discomfiting way, but Trash Humpers pales in comparison with Harmony Korine's earlier, truly transgressive work.

Imagine if you salvaged a grubby VHS tape off the roadside only to discover it contained outtakes from an amateur Jackass knock-off.

This interminable piece of crap copped a big prize at the 2009 Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.

The crass, fuzzy beauty of VHS' defiantly crisp-free recording technology gives haunting visual power to both the empty-parking-lot dreariness of day and the harsh, lamplit hum of night.

They're celebrating. What are they celebrating? The mere fact of being alive... weirdly festive and triumphant,... Something deeper, darker, accrues from the post-adolescent prankishness. If we survive, we all grow elderly, lunatic and happy-go-lucky.

Congratulations Harmony, you've just made the weirdest movie ever.

A Dadaist delight, Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers is a direct descendant of Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures, perhaps the first and only.

Audience Reviews for Trash Humpers


Backing to Korine's earlier transgressive work, Trash Humpers also bring that old charm by VHS and show a brutal critic to American society.

Korine believes to be making something provocative and artsy by refusing anything similar to a plot and shooting in VHS endless unrelated scenes of abhorrent scum, but all he does is bore us to death with an interminable, painfully unwatchable load of crap. (Zero stars)

Carlos Magalh„es

Super Reviewer


A gang of rednecks in wrinkled masks that make them look like escapees from a nursing home for the criminally insane engage in random acts of vandalism in empty suburbs. A dull, pretentious slog through the rubbish: your bourgeois sensibilities may or may not be offended, but they'll almost certainly be bored.
