into weird, cool and underground stuff
I really am surprised that no reviews (or at least none of the ones I read) mention Alien's resemblance to Riff Raff. They're almost identical, both their appearance and their behaviour. Riff Raff put out a track about it and felt honoured but also annoyed that he wasn't in the movie. I think Korine directed one of his music videos (starring Franco as Riff) to make it up to him.
At times funny but mostly heartbreaking, guaranteed to make you uncomfortable. Addresses matters such as parenthood, poverty, longing for intimacy while trapped in a hopeless situation. While watching I was having mixed feelings for the main character. I was feeling for her and was being judgemental at the same time (I know I shouldn't but nobody's perfect 🙃).
'The Florida Project' must have drawn huge influence from this one.
