This is an hella bizarre film that doubles as a fashion look book. The 'film' is written and directed by Harmony Korine who's famous for his hella bizarre movies 'Kids' & the extra hella bizarre 'Gummo'. If you wanna get your uber-post-hipster game up check out 'Trash Humpers' select any line and repeat it ad-nauseam. The film is the single most disturbing/distracting promo for commercial use I've ever seen. Some may find it disturbing and progressively wasteful. I think it ultimately says so much more about the film makers psyche than the subjects situations. It would seem the Proenza Schouler brand team is very interested in art-shock value to promote what looks like a pretty cool fall line of clothes. As a less than casual observer I thought it was cool that they wanted to plumb the depths of the anti-social behavior in this film [BUT] I feel like I hear much of the directors poetry through the scant moments of scathing insight. [This film is about Harmony's perceptions and not about the Black girls lives at all.] Korine is a brilliant, witty and staccato brained film maker who makes great art and I guess pretty damned interesting commerce. And here is a stylish & beautifully morose fashion challenge set before you. Oh well, if they like it, I wanna lick it... but I just kinda watched it looking for the truth in it and of it. Not for anything remotely true about the lives of the characters I love art and this is art not reality.
See the fashion designers take after the bump.
