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.

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.

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.

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

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.

A simultaneous celebration and criticism of youth.

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.
