Gummo * Harmony Korine (1997)

Posted in arthouse on by .

I have seen this film before, but that is possible since it is over a decade old. “Gummo” is a rather experimental film for its time. It is about the inhabitants of a small town that suffered a tornado. “Gummo” is brought a bit as a documentary and shows people who have nothing to do but to kill cats and have bad-mouth conversations about trivial subjects. Korine shows the low-life in their hard lifes resulting in humorous and provocative language and images and in an experimental filming style. The result is a very amusing film.
