[Harmony] Korine, per usual, doesn't take the well-trod path, and the results are more than pleasantly surprising.
June 22, 2019
Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is a visual delight. The 95 minute film feels like one giant montage that never ends.
June 8, 2019
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.
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.
February 2, 2019
This is Korine's trick: he pulls the audience into the decadence of Spring Break before exposing its soulless underside.

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
August 22, 2018
A hip, American version of The In-Betweeners it certainly is. But its sheer outrageousness, wit, and daring lend it a certain charm.

... Spring Breakers should nevertheless be lauded as a boldly superficial film, one that understands the pertinence of an alluring image, and the consequences of valuing only that.
September 1, 2017
Director Harmony Korine possesses an astute ability to periodise moments in youth culture and this latest attempt is for the most successful.
October 14, 2016
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.
August 9, 2016
Korine's latest hallucinogenic young adult frolic Spring Breakers is the first of the director's works I've responded to in any sort of moderately positive fashion.
July 14, 2016
Spring Breakers is titillating and absurd and vulgar and, perhaps most importantly, entertaining.
May 10, 2016
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.
May 10, 2016
Behind the film's vacuous candy-colored outer shell are ambiguous and morally challenging concepts.
April 17, 2016
For moviegoers looking for sensory overload, this will play particularly well.
July 14, 2015
Actual spring breakers will probably loathe the movie; it's really for the pale art majors who never went.
June 1, 2015
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.
