Spring Breakers Reviews
June 15, 2021
Is it social commentary on today's young adult culture? I don't see how. Is it satire? I surely wish it was. Instead this was an earnest try at something...I don't know what.

Alien is the only character in "Spring Breakers" who feels like an actual human being; everyone else is just there to be ogled over or used for shocking imagery.

Spring Breakers also features James Franco at his absolute smarmiest, but the neon ambiance by director Harmony Korine's make this a definite recommendation...

Surrender yourself to a rather dark yet brilliantly entertaining view of the spring break experience.

Harmony Korine's take on a modern sexploitation movie about bikini girls with machine guns in the vein of a Monte Hellman flick.

[Harmony] Korine, per usual, doesn't take the well-trod path, and the results are more than pleasantly surprising.

Before the long, the movie turns into a numbing trailer for itself.

Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is a visual delight. The 95 minute film feels like one giant montage that never ends.

Finds transcendence in trash, wallowing in the basest instincts of human nature to create a mesmerizing and frightening portrait of a world gone mad and innocence destroyed.

Spring Breakers is a crowd-pleaser, although given its confounding creepiness, the crowd it pleases most is surely the forty-year-old filmmaker's intellectual fan base.
February 13, 2019
Blazing a vicious, narcissistic trail straight through the eternally sacred 'American Dream', Korine has reaffirmed himself as one of his nation's most challenging, uncompromising talents.

This is Korine's trick: he pulls the audience into the decadence of Spring Break before exposing its soulless underside.

As transgressive as is, it never quite makes the leap to becoming transcendent of the pop culture it seeks to detonate.
November 1, 2018
No character, no real sense of narrative, no meaningful message. It's just terrible, shallow people doing terrible, shallow things.

Whether you love it or hate it, it's going stay with you.

The sheer indistinctiveness of the plot allows Korine to rub up against it in his own distinctive way, cake it in the grime and dreamy, elliptical asides he's known for. Along the way, the movie becomes something more than the sum of its very cheap parts.

A kind of horrible poetry, a misogynistic pentameter measured out in iambic bikinis

A hip, American version of The In-Betweeners it certainly is. But its sheer outrageousness, wit, and daring lend it a certain charm.

A pseudo-shocking, recent entry in the ongoing, extremely competitive, worst-movie-ever-made contest.
