Trash Humpers (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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.

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

Korine believes to be making something provocative and artsy by refusing anything similar to a plot and shooting endless unrelated scenes of abhorrent scum in VHS, but all he does is bore us to death with an interminable, painfully unwatchable load of crap. (Zero stars)

Backing to Korine's earlier transgressive work, Trash Humpers also bring that old charm by VHS and show a brutal critic to American society.

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.
