my 'heart attack' comment itt was obviously leaning in that direction but to be honest it just kind of speaks to the desperately enthusiastic memecore culture we live in now that the guy people had learned to ignore long before whatever the fuck Mister Lonely and Trash Humpers were is back in the spotlight with a little savvy lol casting

gordon green is an interesting comparison, if korine has the chops to make a legit mainstreamish narrative while mixing in some of his weirdo sensibility it could actually be p sweet, i recognize that this is not v likely, but it is my sincere aspiration for this production

I think there is something to what Shakey says, esp with Franco being the kind of dangerous but safe white "guide" to it all, whereas IIRC it's the scene with actual black people that scares Selena Gomez into going home, and also that's kind of what a lot of white people's relationship to both spring break and mainstream hip-hop is about, having this "safe space" to act out fantasies of hypersexuality and abandon that they associate, via popular culture, with black people.

o this explains the movie's mediocrity

http://www.complex.com/music/2013/02/dangeruss-the-rapper-who-inspired-james-franco-spring-breakers

the whole thing is some surreal dumb shit as the movie itself

but some highlights

Had it been based on me completely, 100%, James wouldn’t have dressed like that. He dressed kind of strange in the movie, for me, for my liking. He’d have looked a lot cooler if I would have had a part in that, which I believe I could have, but I didn’t take the initiative to say, “hey, don’t wear that goofy-lookin’ shit,” you know what I’m saying. As far as—you know, he got the braids, I got dreads, I got big dumb dreads, dreads is a whole—you know, dreads is a lion in the jungle type shit, he had braids, which is like a deer. His appearance, I can’t take credit for that, and I wouldn’t want to.

[...]

I can’t lie. There’s a part of me that believes that it’s not going to be as real as it should be. A lot of it has to do with the way he was dressed in the movie. You would never catch a gangster dressing like that. And the way he talks in the movie, you can kind of tell it’s not real, it’s not authentic. Harmony Korine could have found me and put me in James’ role. I love James Franco, that’s my dog. He called me the other day, two, three days ago, he called me, just checkin’ up on me. I love James. But if Harmony wanted that real, Harmony should have came and when he found me, he should have been like, you know what, tell James I’m gonna get him on something else, we need this guy. I think Harmony knew that. That’s why he wanted me to be a part of it so quick.

"But if I had more time to really school James on that shit, I feel like it could have been better. So yeah, I do have some concerns about that, because I told him what to do, I told him how to do it, but I wasn’t there to be like, naw, that ain’t right. Here, this how you do that. And have him do it. So when I get credit for his actual character, I kind of have to take a blessing and just hope he listens to what I told him. Because like I say, I wasn’t at every single shoot to be like, “hey James, we don’t do that. We don’t do that."

three months pass...

Hesitate to re-open this thread--I know what the next three posts will be--but I wanted to see how this would hold up alongside American Honey, which it obviously influenced. I called it tedious upthread; I think American Honey's far superior, but I found Korine's film somewhat more interesting this time. Franco (nervy performance--he risks coming across as absolutely ridiculous, and I'm sure he does for many people, but I like what he does; Taxi Driver's Sport, definitely), the photography, and the dreaminess of the early scenes are good. Its presentation of generational vacuity is probably just as valid as The Bling Ring or Palo Alto. (They all have at least one character who's set apart--I guess that's Selena Gomez here.) Past that, I don't know. I didn't grow up with MTV's spring break series--maybe that'd provide some context I don't have. American Honey moves me; at best, Spring Breakers points towards something more, and settles for repetitions that are supposed to be hypnotic or profound or something. For me, they're just repetitive.

One good thing about this movie is it showed franco was so bad it helped him get less roles

And thus we never hear about him anymore

Thank you korine

My conclusion too. I can't persuade myself to watch Springbreakers again, though.

It's like Andrea Arnold saw this, really responded to something in it, then wondered if you could do a variation on it (helped by finding her source material in the newspaper) with a lot of feeling and empathy in place of a concept.
