“I was inspired by the idea of finding an artifact found in an attic or a videotape buried in a ditch,” “I wanted to create something that was more like a feeling. I had to close my eyes and allow myself to get to a place where I could tap into ideas and images.” - Harmony Korine
Harmony Korine, writer of Kids (1995) and director of Julien Donkey-Boy (1999) returns with his follow up to his 2007 film Mister Lonely with what seems to be his most experimental and provocative film to date. The films style is one which mimics a worn VHS tape, and follows a "loser-gang cult-freak collective" who literally hump trash cans and perform other tasteless acts. Korine says that the inspiration for the film came from his observations of people in his neighbourhood while growing up in Nashville, Tennesse. The look of the film is a huge contrast from his last film, which was a fully fledged high budget production. It will be interesting to see if this film has any substance, or whether it will turn out being a pretentious low budget mess, with the sole purpose of shocking the audience. Either way, I look forward to it.

Absolutely stunningly beautiful animation by Pete Candeland, the man behind the music videos for Gorillaz. I'm not a huge fan of all of the Gorillaz videos, but this is absolutely amazing! It has a similar feel to it as Waltz With Bashir. If you haven't seen Waltz With Bashir, I strongly recommend it.
