Spring Breakers

Looks like Hollywood finally made a movie for guys that can only enjoy gun violent movies by masturbating to them!

I'm fascinated to find out how in the world Harmony Korine got this made.

I saw it at TIFF this year - it's going to surprise a lot of people. It's a lot like Magic Mike in the sense that there's a whole lot more going on than the trailer would show you. It's very, VERY dark. James Franco absolutely transforms into his role.

James Franco looks absolutely ridiculous in this

That being said, i'll end up downloading this... He's a great actor, and the ladies are just incentive

Definition of an art-house film. It's an 1.5 hour critique of today's trash culture. It's brilliant.

I haven't actually seen the film, but apparently the girls all survive and get away in the end. How could an ending that involves zero consequences for their horrendous actions be critical of todays culture?

It's a wild ride and certainly not the one that I was expecting. Whatever performance you think is Matthew McConaughey's best character performance of the past five years, Franco either equals it or trumps it in this film.

^^James Franco was amazing in it and should deservingly get some buzz. He won't though because of the style of the movie. I still think McConaughey was snubbed for Magic Mike last year.

I didn't really get it, and I have a pretty varied taste and wasn't without interest in the movie.

Just watched this, it was...interesting. Visually very captivating. Franco was really good. The girls almost seemed like they were there along for the ride, you never got into their minds much. I felt at times like I don't know what the hell I was watching, yet I feel positive for seeing it.

Here's an Imgur album with shots/quotes from the movie and someone's attempt to explain what they feel is some of the symbolism in the film. Not sure I agree but it's a good read:

(warning: spoilers and some NSFW language/bikini clad individuals..obviously)

I'm looking forward to watching it again on DVD when it comes out. All I know is that it's about more than spring break.

Very appropriate interpretation of the symbolisms and I picked up a lot if myself when I watched it. I noticed this was very well received by the critics in Finland when it came to theaters a couple of months ago (I downloaded ). Practically all 3-5 stars, mostly 4 stars. One in particular nailed the movie perfectly for what it was.

I get all the meaning behind it, but if I didn't I'd view this as a really poor movie. Franco really seemed like the one reason to watch. The whole thing felt like it was designed to make the person watching feel very uneasy. Not really because of what was going on onscreen...I see that kind of stuff either in real life or in movies and TV all the time...nothing new. Honestly I felt more uneasy because of the way the film and it's direction flowed, the lighting, and the soullessness of 3 of the 4 girls (was surprised that Selena Gomez's performance didn't make me cringe the way I thought it would)...and that's not me saying they're terrible actresses. Usually when it's a bad performance I'll just write it off as crap. I don't know. There was something disturbing about them. Maybe for what the movie was trying to do, that's a good thing.

By the way, looks like one of the girls (the pink haired one) literally screwed a director for the role...kind of. She's the director's wife. Way to put her bwebs in the movie for the world to see.

Well they've been married for 6 years and have one one child. The movie /story required some nudity by some of the girls(since shock value was one of the themes in the movie), it was probably easier to get her to do it.

I wish I didn't have "Everytime" by Britney Spears playing in my head now...

I am reminded of Kids and Bully.
I can see the influence of Larry Clark in this one.

The neon colour scheme...
It is really pretty to look at...
And very different because all the other films have the colour drained...
But it gets annoying after a while.

The film is definitely not for everyone.
Right now...
I have no idea what I just watched.
There is something there...
But it is overshadowed up by the colour and the camera work.
This is one of the very few times...
That I want to re-watch a film...
Just to get a better sense of it.
