If not the single worst film of the decade, at least the worst of the year -- and I saw Tarzan and the Lost City.

Probably the vilest waste of 2 hours of my life.

Korine's trying to offer a radical vision of rotten America, but the whole thing feels warmed over.
February 27, 2001
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

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

By the end, one almost wishes another tornado would descend and wash away these subnormal characters for whom there is neither redemption nor purpose in life.

The effect is as horribly funny as it is depressing, but gets pretty hard to take after a while, especially for anyone who is a committed cat-lover.

January 1, 2000
Simply a series of incidents with no central narrative in sight, and though the film strives to achieve realism, it feels contrived and false.
January 1, 2000
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.

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