Really disappointed with Gummo. A totally self-indulgent piece of shit. Kids was better but not by much. Gummo self-indulgent? How.
In every way you can fathom. He thinks he's showing the reality of these rural people and their lives. But instead he's made a tedious collection of things that don't have any connection to reality while still convincing himself that everything on screen is either beautiful or true. And it's neither.
And I'm talking about the following scenes in particular...
- The long shot of Sevigny with her hand going through her hair
- Two girls in the pool kissing the boy bunny
- The boy killing cats (and eventually running up to the camera to show it's dead body)
- The older man in the car with the two girls
And there's more. Adding a bunch of scenes like that together does not make a successful movie. I admit it's an interesting and very unusual film but ultimately a failure. I'm not discussing it anymore.
i hope i dont loose any firends for this....but
i agree w/vines. anything affiliated w/ korine and clark. is shit filmmaking.. ono, you have good taste man..you are too smart to be down w/ gummo
....exspecially seeing how well you write in the idle chatter thread..if i was younger and more naive then i would might like it..why? why? why? would someone actually own gummo/kids and watch it and think it is decent/good? the actors all suck telly is so fucking annoying... i hate the way telly talks ..he sound like he's got a fucking dick in his mouth [maybe clarks?]..i hate telly's teeth.. they are nasty and fucked up. i hate his emaciated body and his stupid hair. i hate that white trash kid who goes around drinking forties and sk8boarding....i hate the cheesy interracial shit in the pool- so fake just like thirteen. i hate the girls and i hate their skank yankee accents. i hate the cinematography. ..i hate the white trash punk music in the film. i hate the dialogue....how hard is it to write something like this:
telly: yous guys, i wanna fuck my moms then stick a crayon in her pussy then have my dad finger me in the ass and i want him to pull out my prostate gland through my ass
kid #2: i wanna fuck your mom while my mom gives me aids
kid #3: i wanna shit on my sisters mouth then fuck her cousin then cut one of her breast off and eat the nipple
kid #4: i wanna spread my grandmother's douche on a philly cheese steak.
kids #5 i wanna rape my guidance counselor then suck all the milk out of her tits then spit it back in her face.
thats basically the writing of korine w/ clark masturbating behind the scenes.....you guys [xixax] are suppose to be smarter than this...if you wanna watch something that takes talent to helm and is full of risque business, then check out irreversible. owning kids/gummo is like owning a coldplay cd in that you think its cool and hip but its fake and makes you look like a poser when you pimp it....
