The Beach Bum

The Beach Bum ★★★★½

this movie is so intelligently, meticulously stupid. saw it at music box with Harmony Korine in person afterwards. choice quotes of his I felt informed my understanding:

"i like shooting on film because it makes a nice noise and it's basically like burning money"

"wasting money is one of my favorite things in the world"

"making movies sucks, it's such a pain in the ass"

"yeah we want to basically pump a bunch of weed into theaters that screen this if we can"

seemed like a genuine dude who truly does not care about the rest of the industry and decided to make something that made him smile and laugh. i was a huge fan and cannot remember the last time i laughed and smiled this consistently through a movie, ESPECIALLY the Zac Efron sequence

Will liked these reviews
