I’d been warned by enough people that this was an odd little film, perhaps viewed best whilst high, but I voyaged into it sober. It’s such an interesting little flick. Essentially it’s about a bunch of young women who can’t afford to go off on spring break so they rob a little restaurant with water guns, and then when they get to their destination soon find themselves in the company of a true bad-ass. And that bad-ass is played by James Franco in what seems like the son of Drexel Spivey, the Gary Oldman character from True Romance.
The film is meant to be a bit of a trip, mostly played out in a dreamlike montage. Korine does some interesting thing with voice-over, using the same piece to juxtapose different things. It feels like it’s meant to be a satire, but the fear is young women see this and actually get excited by the goings-on. Or maybe I’m just turning into a grumpy old bastard. Anyway, it’s on Netflix, so if you missed it in theatres and were curious to see it, it’s pretty available. Worth a gander!
