Has anyone actually seen this movie? I saw it last night and I hated it. Perhaps I've grown apart from Harmony Korine's filmmaking but I found this to be almost unwatchable.
I will admit that Spring Breakers clearly has something to say. The nonsensical, yet sometimes humorous, satire that consumes this movie is simply not subtle enough. For example, the character of Alien (played by James Franco), clearly references Lil Wayne. We find Alien repeating again and again, "I'm not from this planet, y'all!" This is linear to Wayne's gimmick of, "We are not the same! I am a martian!" Korine even went so far as to put a teardrop tattoo uder Franco's eye in addition to several other similar tattoos including a dollar sign on the right side of his neck. You will find the female characters uttering comments pertaining to the ability to "find" themselves on spring break while the camara shows mass levels of drunked behavior, jiggling breasts in slow motion, and a high level of drug use.
The sexual content in this film is gratuitious, although that's to be expected when dealing with Korine. Every now and then, I'll watch a film that will inspire me to write a full review regardless of my opinion. This is one of them. There are way too many elements to mention and I don't have enough time to cover all of them, but I will later get to writing a review for this movie.
Spring Breakers is the most self-indulgent film I've ever seen from Harmony Korine, and that says a lot. Although, I haven't yet seen Trash Humpers, so I may be forced to be retract my previous statement if I ever get around to seeing it. However, based on my disdain for this film, I doubt I'll ever get to it.
