Spring Breakers (2012) Film Review

My review of Harmony Korine’s latest and best feature, SPRING BREAKERS, starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and James Franco. A nihilist treatise on modern “spring break” culture and the chauvinist tropes of popular media, Korine’s recent film is becoming an indie success story in theaters. Opening wider and wider with the incoming weeks, it also attracts attention for the breakout performances of former Disney Channel stars Gomez and Hudgens. Similarly, Franco’s performance is one of his very best, suited to the direction of this disgusting yet splendid auteur.
