Spring Breakers: An Odyssey of Excess, Capitalism, and the American Dream

Harmony Korine is among our most enigmatic and polarizing filmmakers. His cinematic style is one of neo-realist nuance, bordering on a voyeuristic experience masquerading as an exposé, and his form of cinematic storytelling has been situated between impressionistic sociological documentary and emblematically American neo-realism. Throughout his filmography, Korine’s documentary-like technique and realist aesthetic have captured…

There’s a scene in Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade that is more casually upsetting than anything you’re bound to see in any horror film this year.

The Purge films are special, mostly because they’ve offered up perhaps the purest examples of modern exploitation cinema being made with a mainstream mindset.

Their new album I’ll Be Your Girl, however, seeks to change up their style and tone, while maintaining their uniquely powerful lyricism and…

As he proved most recently in Ex Machina, writer/director Alex Garland knows how to ratchet up tension subtly over time, until pieces either come together or scramble into chaos.
