Trash Humpers

Movie Summary

Director:
Harmony Korine
Released:
2010
Rating:
Not Available
Trash Humpers follows a small gang of sinister 'elderly' peeping toms through the shadows of a nightmarishly familiar suburban landscape. Their shocking and sociopathic behaviour makes for unbearably compelling viewing that scorches itself onto the mind's eye. Married with a child, and now residing in his native Nashville, cinematic provocateur Harmony Korine shows no signs of settling down. Hailed as "the future of American cinema" by Werner Herzog, writer/ director Korine has blazed a trail with his consistently idiosyncratic output, including KIDS, GUMMO, JULIEN DONKEY-BOY and MISTER LONELY. TRASH HUMPERS sees him return to the big screen with an excoriating attack on the American Dream. A lo-fi production of white-heat intensity, Korine calls it, "a new type of horror; palpable and raw.

    Idolized in some quarters and reviled in others, Mr. Korine, now 37, may be a bit long in the tooth for the enfant terrible act.
