I'd love to know what Harmony Korine
said to get the money for The Beach Bum (not crazy money, only about $5 million; but still), and to have seen his investors' faces when they watched the finished product.
Those two statements pretty much sum up what this movie, the latest from Harmony Korine
, thinks of itself.
"The Beach Bum" -- Matthew McConaughey is at his dirt bag finest as a stoner-poet named Moondog in Harmony Korine
's bizarre and transfixing Florida-set carnival of vulgarity and vice.
Evoking classics of the coming-of-age genre from American Graffiti, Rebel Without A Cause, Kids (director Harmony Korine
even cameos here), to the works of Hill's hero Martin Scorsese, it's clear where Hill is taking his inspiration from.
The nine-story slide takes visitors 93 feet in the air, something Holler intended to evoke feelings "somewhere between delight and madness." Notable guests who attended the opening included Chloe Sevigny (pictured, left, with Mark Handforth and Karolina Kurkova), Harmony Korine
, and Craig Robins.
"Gummo", directed by Harmony Korine
, is considered a cult film dedicated for adults however it has gained popularity among the cult-productions fan base.
Pallenberg, who was known for sporting the 1960s style, played the Great Tyrant in Roger Vadim's "Barbarella," a nurse in the cult film "Candy," and in "Performance." She played Sin in Abel Ferrara's Go Go Tales (2007), a Queen Elizabeth impersonator in Harmony Korine
's Mister Lonely (2007) and an opium-den hostess in Stephen Frears' Cheri (2009).

Arbus emerges as a media theorist of cultural convergence, an anthropologist of postmodern America who anticipates and breaks ground for other chroniclers of the cracked, bruised, and hallucinatory such as Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, David Lynch, and Harmony Korine
. More than that, she anticipates whole swathes of online visuality--Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest--where users cultivate and display their notionally off-kilter sensibilities through assembling images of the quirky, zany, defective.
Miss Benson, a two-time Teen Choice Award winner who co-starred in Harmony Korine
's debauched 2012 cult classic "Spring Breakers," continues to own a 1930s French Normandy cottage just above the Sunset Strip that she picked up in 2012 for $2.2 million, and was previously owned by Kylie Minogue and, later, Dave Stewart of Eurythmies fame.
In the third sculptural theater, Range Week, the 20 13 videos CENTER JENNY (imagine a cross between Mike Kelley's Day Is Done and Harmony Korine
's Spring Breakers) and the crucially formative Junior War (edited from Trecartin's circa 2000 video footage of the artist's high-school friends wreaking havoc on the Ohio town he grew up in) looped in the company of a set of bleachers surrounded by coolers, balled-up tube socks, and monster-truck tires.
In celebrating (and, perhaps, critiquing) 21st-century technology within the confines of the decidedly analog form of the novel, Cronenberg joins the small but growing fraternity of established filmmakers like Ethan Coen, Harmony Korine
, and Gus Van Sant who have tried their hand at fiction.
