Movie Summary

Director:
Harmony Korine
Released:
1999
Rating:
R
Julien Donkey-Boy, a film written and directed by Harmony Korine, is an independent dramatic film about a dysfunctional family consisting of Julien (Ewen Bremner), a young man tormented by the effects of his untreated schizophrenia, his pregnant sister, Pearl (Chloe Sevigny), who is expecting his child, their athletic brother Chris (Evan Neumann), who has ambitions to become a professional wrestler, and an abusive, often sharp-tongued father (Werner Herzog). Life in this socially impaired family is full of fights, wrestling matches, and mental abuse at the hands of their cough syrup-addicted, ether-inhaling father. Julien is portrayed as a damaged scapegoat in this outrageously flawed relationship. He still becomes the improbable hero of this tale, all while exposing the breach in the mind of a schizophrenic as he struggles with clashing realities. Julien Donkey-Boy premiered in September 1999 at the Venice Film Festival, and received a limited release on October 15, 1999 at a cinema in Los Angeles. Julien Donkey-Boy is often acknowledged as a prime representation of contemporary avant-garde cinema.moreless
