Editorial Reviews

Word on Spring Breakers has been loud enough for everyone to know that this is not a typical teen romp about college kids blowing off steam and getting their party on along the golden shores of Florida's Gulf Coast. It is that for sure, but writer-director Harmony Korine's vision of the masses of toned hardbodies' drink- and drug-fueled days and day-glo nights goes far deeper than playful exploitation. His intention is to peel away the trappings of a genre to uncover realms much more disturbing. Though wildly uneven, Spring Breakers is always entertaining, from the early gaudy scenes of girls and guys gone wild, to the unsettling apparitions of a hallucinatory thug life that come later. The camera gawks at all of this with slightly detached dread, whether it's brightly lit bikinis bouncing on the beach in slow motion or the automatic weapons, heavy-duty drugs, and unsavory characters who inhabit the place when all the spring breakers are gone. Much has been made of the fact that Spring Breakers is a breakout from good-girl status for stars Selena Gomez (as Faith) and Vanessa Hudgens (as Candy). Along with Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty (Rachel Korine, the director's wife), this quartet is itching to play bad as they first get the money to travel to Florida by pulling a heist, then letting loose once they get there with the thousands of other mostly undressed youths (we almost never see the four leads in anything other than op-art bikinis). Being a little too bad, they end up in a jail cell, but they find themselves bailed out by a loony local named Alien. By all movie logic, this should go down as one of James Franco's defining performances. He is truly sensational. The movie soars when he enters the story as a cornrowed, be-grilled, heavily tattooed gangsta whose ear-to-ear smile and poetic rap patter enrapture the girls into the kind of danger they've only been playing at so far. Alien proves a little too creepy for one, who soon escapes home; another heads back north after an incident of gunplay brings the reality too close. But Candy and Brit stick around as Alien's soulmates, all sharing his guns, his bed, his money, and his inflated sense of self as one. A nominal plot pits Alien against a rival drug kingpin, and the movie devolves into farce in the final reel, but not before Korine has a chance to elevate the hypnotic imagery and obscenely elegiac dialogue into something much higher than the sum of its parts. For some, Spring Breakers may seem a transgressive nightmare of debauchery in its depiction of a social reality that Hollywood would dare not touch. But it's also a fever dream of color, humor, horror, wit, and craziness that has something to say. If for no other reason, see Spring Breakers simply for the image of James Franco losing himself with a glee even one such as the great and powerful Oz could never imagine. --Ted Fry

I was really, really surprised by this film. The preview does not really do it justice, as this is NOT a film about a white gangsta and a crew of Girls Gone Wild armed robbers. Yes, there is a white gangster, and there are sexy girls in bikinis robbing and shooting. But the film is not actually about those facts. The film is a study in CONTRAST (both visual and thematic), and in challenging your expectations. The filmmaker is really, really good at changing gears once you think you understand the characters' motivations, or where the plot is going. At first, Franco's "Alien" character seems like a con-man hustler, and you feel an almost paternal fear for the girls as he sucks them into his world, but this perspective does not last long, and soon you are starting to wonder if the girls are really just using him as he grows more emotionally attached to them. They turn the tables on his apparent supremacy in a scene involving his gun collection and his bedroom, and the sexual dynamic of the group shifts radically.

On that topic, there is surprisingly little sex in the film. The scenes of spring break debauchery leave the actual act to the imagination for the most part, and by the time sex actually occurs in the Franco-Girls gang, it is far more emotional than you have been expecting. The scene where Franco's "Alien" serenades the ladies with a Brittany Spears song SHOULD have been a point of ridicule, but as it was happening, all I could think was that this is EXACTLY how a character like Alien would express his genuine emotions.

The film is shockingly beautiful, visually. The moments of color contrast are perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting on people's nerves March 24, 2014
By Darren
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Just look at all those 1-star reviews, my my. Why do I get the feeling that those 1-star rates and comments are from a bunch of guys in their early 20s going, "wtf"? They had hoped for something stupid and sexy; what they got was an art film from a moralist who has a lot to say about the gangsta culture embraced by bored Caucasian suburban youth. It's a culture that glorifies violence and ostentatious consumption ("Look at all my S***!" James Franco howls with glee while jumping up and down on his ridiculous bed). It's a culture that encourages young women to look and act like whores while simultaneously pretending to some sort of you-go-girl faux-feminism. I am Woman, hear me roar -- now watch me shake my booty like Beyonce. Feminism for Dummies. This culture is now mainstream among the under-25 set. "Spring Breakers" attacks that culture by taking its precepts to their logical conclusion. By doing so, director Harmony Korine (male, btw) also attacks the generation responsible for it. No wonder y'all hate this movie, yo. Not only has this movie gotten on your nerves, I suspect it has struck a few nerves, too.

One thing's for certain: Increasing equality between the sexes is creating more aggressive females, sexually or otherwise. The movie shows this paradigm in action with a superb scene between Franco and two of the girls in his bed. After thinking that he's impressed them both with his gangsta routine, he's ready to get down to business with them ... but they turn the tables on him, holding him at gunpoint (he has guns lying around everywhere) and sticking the guns in his mouth. The gender roles are reversed, or, more interestingly, blurred.

First off, this film is intended to be disturbing, and to create knee jerk reactions. Sometimes art wants us to examine ourselves, and often, through that process, things may hit a little too close to home. This movie is a huge commentary on the "party" scene and the absolute idiotic, reckless, behavior college age adults will put themselves into in the meaning of having fun. I have no doubt parents out there will be mortified to think their teenager is on Spring Break participating in the hedonistic lifestyle choices portrayed in the movie, or more mature older adults will think back to their own shameful mistakes of their youth, which is kind of the point. The characters are mostly one dimensional, plot is sparse, violence, nudity, drugs use, and hedonism are abundant but it's obvious all of these factors contribute to the message of the movie and Harmony Korine's comments on the the culture he is mocking. I also love that the slow paced "art" film quality of this movie is a harsh and fascinating contrast to the gratuitous excess of the violence, drug use and overly sexed party scenes. A lot of people are not going to like this movie at all, and I actually feel sorry for someone who goes into this movie thinking they are going to see a feel good road movie about Spring Break. This is a very dark, satirical, look at what today's youth are exposed to and what they might find themselves falling into.
