Harmony Korine's latest feature is a lurid neon poem of a spring break road trip that descends into drugs, gang war, and pink balaclavas adorned with unicorns.

Spring Breakers is titillating and absurd and vulgar and, perhaps most importantly, entertaining.

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.

Actual spring breakers will probably loathe the movie; it's really for the pale art majors who never went.

The most extraordinary thing about Korine's direction is how he gradually shifts the position of the viewer from self-possessed outsider looking in to complete immersion during a denouement where there is no one worth rooting for.

Sort of like what might happen if Jean-Luc Godard directed a Girls Gone Wild video, it's not just a movie that has its cake and eats it too. This is a movie that has its cake and eats more cake.

Korine's most entertaining film to date.

It's Malick-meets-dubstep amid post-"Kids"-skin-and-sin with the costumes of Pussy Riot and a sunset-by-the-sea Britney Spears sing-along by Alien and the girls that is both ridiculous and touching.

The movie is too calculated to shock. Korine just wants to be the danger he's warning us about.

...a thoroughly detestable piece of gutter trash masquerading as some kind of abstract piece of pop art.

I'm not sure how many glow sticks died in the making of Spring Breakers, but I am sure that it was worth it.

A trippy, florescent whirl of boobs and bongs.

I couldn't get past the feeling that this was basically the director's softcore material masquerading as a feature film

Often exploitative and completely gratuitous, it succeeds in also exploring the recklessness of youth...

Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is rough around the edges, visually pleasing, experimental and a downright bizarre film, but one that's worthy of at least one viewing.

A ridiculous, repetitive and empty drama.

You're probably gonna hate Spring Breakers, but I bet you love it, too.

If you can look beyond Harmony Korine's misogynistic, uncomfortably leering view of the women in his film, there is some stuff to enjoy, though the film is held back by an unfortunate lack of substance.
