A trippy, florescent whirl of boobs and bongs.

Spring break 4eva!

It's campy and comic at times, but Korine also gives the film a downbeat, melancholic edge, with voiceovers, pointed repetition of dialogue and images, and hallucinatory camera work, sound and editing.

For all its absurdity and voyeurism, Korine brings to it a real authorial style.

An authentically cracked expression of the crazy, conflicting signals bombarding today's teenagers.

March 21, 2013
A mash-up of last year's teensploitation opus Project X, Pulp Fiction, Natural Born Killers and a Girls Gone Wild video.
