Is it social commentary on today's young adult culture? I don't see how. Is it satire? I surely wish it was. Instead this was an earnest try at something...I don't know what.

Spring Breakers is a crowd-pleaser, although given its confounding creepiness, the crowd it pleases most is surely the forty-year-old filmmaker's intellectual fan base.

From it's pointless script, sloppy acting and dreadful direction, Spring Breakers is not nearly as profound as it pretends to be.

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.

Behind the film's vacuous candy-colored outer shell are ambiguous and morally challenging concepts.

The movie is too calculated to shock. Korine just wants to be the danger he's warning us about.

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.

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.

Drink, drugs, sex and robbery with minor violence.

The trouble is all in the film's wildly anxious structure, which feels largely dictated in the cutting-room by Korine going out of his way not to be accused of a message.

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.
Apr 4, 2013
For all its absurdity and voyeurism, Korine brings to it a real authorial style.
Apr 1, 2013
A lurid, luminous teen-bender movie, as ludicrous as it is stylish, and Harmony Korine's best film in years.

Neon bright and all raw energy, Spring Breakers is a pulsating paradox of a movie, both a tangerine dream and a cultural reality check, a pop artifact that simultaneously exploits and explores the shallowness of pop artifacts.
Mar 28, 2013
Korine's story is a searing indictment of today's hedonistic, nihilistic youth, and his script is loaded with sharp, telling dialogue that exposes the rotten moral cores of its characters.

The film stands, overall, as one of the director's richer provocations ...

Once a year, St. Petersburg is awash with thoughtless, unpleasant people making poor decisions. This spring, Korine is one of them.
