Gummo ★★

It ain’t no Spring Breakers, but it’s rather comparable to Trash Humpers, and I’m actually not quite sure which I preferred. They both explore similar themes in similar ways, but I think Trash Humpers is the one I’d be more inclined to rewatch with friends rather than this.

I did definitely like parts of this film, the visuals were fairly nice and Dot and Darby were really great. They definitely felt like the most real characters and you could actually sort of connect with them. The rest of the ensemble were alright but they worked to explore the community well at least. I don’t quite understand the significance of Bunny Boy or the VHS clips but whatever.
