Harmony's movies are like watching a car crash, IMO. There's no "art", there's no good guys or bad guys, it's more like it's all stream of consciousness stuff that sucks you in like a bad episode of Cops.
First time I saw Gummo, I kept wondering if these people could be any more worthless than they already had become, and then we're met with the retarded prostitute.
Harmony's stuff is lower than the bottom of the barrel. It's so toxic that it would eat through the foulest of shitholes and leave the turds begging for mercy.
Yet, all that being said, I still find myself glued to the screen when I encounter a DVD or an IFC viewing of one of Harmony's movies.
I think his films are absolutely horrible, and I love them all.
