Gummo ★★★★½

"Life is beautiful. Really it is. Full of beauty and illusions. Life is great. Without it, you'd be dead."

Well, well, well, what do we have here?
A semi-apocalyptic film.
A semi-surrealistic film.
A semi-realistic film.
A kind of fucked up film.
A kind of ugly film.
A kind of beautiful film.
A film with no boundaries.
A film where children go hunt dead cats and kill living ones if they can't find any.
A film where girls puff up their nipples by putting tape on them and ripping it off.
A film where kids pay to fuck a mentally disabled girl.
A film about a kid with bunny ears.
A film about dancing to Madonna.
A film about eating spaghetti and chocolate bars while in a brown-watered bath, getting your hair washed by your momma.
A film about survival.
A film about life, death and life after death.
A film about people with more than enough issues...

Fragmented as fuck, showing life in it's most abstract way, this little gem by the elusive Harmony Korine is one of those films that has to be seen to be believed. To summarize it: people who have gone through the worst of tragedies, will never be able to go back to normal again.
You'll need quite the stomach for this, but if you have one, use it, because you won't be disappointed.
