Trash Humpers (2010)
Critic Consensus: It's oddly affecting in a deeply discomfiting way, but Trash Humpers pales in comparison with Harmony Korine's earlier, truly transgressive work.

Critic Reviews for Trash Humpers
Imagine if you salvaged a grubby VHS tape off the roadside only to discover it contained outtakes from an amateur Jackass knock-off.
This interminable piece of crap copped a big prize at the 2009 Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.
The crass, fuzzy beauty of VHS' defiantly crisp-free recording technology gives haunting visual power to both the empty-parking-lot dreariness of day and the harsh, lamplit hum of night.
The spirit of celluloid is dragging 3D CGI to the toilet and giving it a swirly.
For the brave souls who make it to the end, there should at least be no question of the movie's sincerity.
However crassly delivered, Mr. Korine's warning against over-consumption is unambiguous: these savages are our future, our "true seed." The only surprise is that he didn't include a shot of one of them violating this film.
Audience Reviews for Trash Humpers
Backing to Korine's earlier transgressive work, Trash Humpers also bring that old charm by VHS and show a brutal critic to American society.
Korine believes to be making something provocative and artsy by refusing anything similar to a plot and shooting in VHS endless unrelated scenes of abhorrent scum, but all he does is bore us to death with an interminable, painfully unwatchable load of crap. (Zero stars)
A gang of rednecks in wrinkled masks that make them look like escapees from a nursing home for the criminally insane engage in random acts of vandalism in empty suburbs. A dull, pretentious slog through the rubbish: your bourgeois sensibilities may or may not be offended, but they'll almost certainly be bored.
