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.
"Spring Breakers" might engender multiple viewings and a cult status à la "Scarface." Korine, unfortunately, jumps the gun by frequently repeating lines of Franco's dialogue in voiceover, as if "Spring Breakers" already is on repeat.
It's not exactly an exploitation film, and it's not exactly an art film, but it's also both at the same time. It's the type of experience that blows your mind but convinces you that nobody else on the planet is going to "get" it.
The message may be lost on those who only came for the bountiful breasts and booties... Spring Breakers is an immersive phantasmagoria; one of the funniest, strangest, prettiest, and flat out maddest films of the year.
( ... ) for anyone refusing to acquiesce that this degree of 'girl power' is less a rite of passage and more like a collective suicide plunge onto a bed of six inch nails, perhaps Korine is right to be so provocative.
