"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.

While films such as Spring Breakers should never be blamed for gun violence, they can be used to gauge just how much people truly care about such issues. And how quickly they are willing to forget.

Director Korine obviously wants to make some profound comment about the debauchery of Floridian spring-breaking but he's sucked into the whole sleazy world head-first.

In many ways, this trashy, dazzling but enigmatic film belongs to Franco's Alien, a wannabe gangsta who just doesn't have the guts or heart to be a cold-hearted thug.

The ideals of freedom, paradise and the American dream pulse in a neon coloured, bubble-gum scented descent into darkness

Parents will look on with dismay; others will leave feeling bemused but thoroughly entertained.

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.

Most shocking of all is that while Spring Breakers takes some time to find its bearings, this may be the most confident and artistically-grounded film of Korine's career.

An audacious, synth-pop mélange of ecstatic heaven and drugged-out hell -- an allegory for the corruption of innocence and the fear of blossoming female sexuality.

( ... ) 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.

There's Korine, defiantly lobbing grenades at the mainstream and exploding it all to hell.

Korine would feel he'd failed badly were I to have enjoyed it.

A wild ride of a movie, Spring Breakers finds gleeful cinematic provocateur Harmony Korine pitching a bunch of former teen starlets into a headlong spree of sex and drugs and gangsta rap.

Traditionally, spring break flicks are teen angst induced romantic comedies. Brain death is the best description. Spring Breakers is a totally new way to do that brain death.

Arthouse filmmaker Harmony Korine (Mister Lonely) comes dangerously close to making a mainstream movie with this blackly comical thriller.

Maintaining his queasy dialectic throughout, the director oscillates between disgust and frenzied indulgence.

You start the film wondering what the moral take on all this uninventive debauchery is going to be - is it a satire? - but then realise with dismay there is no take on offer at all.
