They're celebrating. What are they celebrating? The mere fact of being alive... weirdly festive and triumphant,... Something deeper, darker, accrues from the post-adolescent prankishness. If we survive, we all grow elderly, lunatic and happy-go-lucky.

Congratulations Harmony, you've just made the weirdest movie ever.

A Dadaist delight, Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers is a direct descendant of Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures, perhaps the first and only.

The most shocking thing about Trash Humpers is that it's boring...at times, hellishly annoying, but virtually never offensive.

In one scene of "Trash Humpers," the camera lingers on an abandoned toilet in the middle of a field, as voices cackle off-camera. The filmography of Harmony Korine, ladies and gentlemen!

Viewers unfamiliar with Korine's alternative style of filmmaking may walk out in disgust. But if you're willing to broaden your cinematic expectations to include the utterly random, it's a must-see.

Mostly it is just repulsive but occasionally it's beguiling, and at these points it feels like Korine is getting at something, showing us exactly what we don't want to see...

There's no plot to speak of, but the mayhem Korine captures is oddly engrossing, like a twisted piece of performance art.

Trash Humpers, far being an authentic expression of the American Id, is a nostalgic lament for an era in which Korine's films could be held up, rightly or wrongly, as transgressive. No longer.

There's no real narrative, just three folk in latex OAP masks snorting and cackling through a series of often noctural adventures with wheelchairs, hookers and undead-looking street poet types.

It is an exercise in experimental provocation and in pure insolence, while sometimes being horribly funny and fascinating, reviving the spirit of Tod Browning's Freaks and the ice-cold vision of Diane Arbus.
June 18, 2010
It's a typical Korine move: gesture towards seriousness, and then undercut it in the name of puerility. Or is it post-political cynicism?
June 18, 2010
As funny as it is horrific, and as beautiful as it is repulsive, Harmony Korine has crafted one of the most fully-formed (and undeniably affecting) art movies of recent years.
June 17, 2010
A tedious slog that appears to have been made for the express purpose of annoying the audience. It succeeds at that, so I guess I have to give it a good review.
June 17, 2010
As close to unwatchable as cinema gets, Harmony Korine's latest stab at alienating his audience seems perversely designed to test the loyalty of those who stuck with the underground auteur through Gummo and Mister Lonely.
June 17, 2010
This is counter-cinema at its best. For every insipid, corporate-led blockbuster that comes hurtling out of Hollywood, something as gross, coarse and provocative as Trash Humpers must counteract, if just to remind us of the power of film.

Imagine if you salvaged a grubby VHS tape off the roadside only to discover it contained outtakes from an amateur Jackass knock-off.

A often grim vaudeville parade of Nashville's oddballs and ne'er-do-wells.

A gang ofelderly morons have sex with garbage. What more can I say about Trash Humpers?
