Drinking, Fighting, F*&King, and Crying

Gummo RabbitThis will be a quick one. And really, my usual go-to for a quick ‘crying’ song reference would be The Cure, pretty much anything they did in the Disintegration-era. I’m not taking that route today though (but I’m betting I will somewhere not too far off down the line – there’s at least one good ‘crying’ installment of this column that will center around juxtaposing Disintegration with James O’Barr’s The Crow). Instead, I’m taking this one at face value and going Orbison.

Spring Breakers

This past Friday a friend of mine and I went to see Writer/Director Harmony Korine’s newest film Spring Breakers. I have to admit, when I first heard about this film – or perhaps I should say with the first images I saw of the film – I was taken aback. If one were to believe the trailers and ads or contemplate the mainstream selections for the cast (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens) then fairly avant garde filmmaker Harmony Korine had just made a mainstream film.

Rule #1: Never trust the trailer
