In the Summer of 2010, the underground trend of trash-humping JUMPED the NASHVILLE CITY LIMITS as the film Trash Humpers spread across the nation, screening in movie theaters, galleries, bars and grills and anyplace, really, indoors or out, that could draw a crowd to see the thing. Filmmaker Harmony Korine often accompanied the film, standing around and answering questions when he wasn't doing something else. It was something to see, but the only problem was, all you could do once you'd walked away was revisit the images seared into your brain for the rest of your life. Now, the official DVD release of Trash Humpers is here for you to take with you to whatever your destiny has to offer you. You don't know when you're gonna die. It could be tomorrow. But hopefully it won't be until after September 21st, when Trash Humpers becomes available on DVD, complete with the extra featurettes Mac and Plac, and Blood of Havana, as well as deleted scenes that everyone forgot about after making this but are actually kind of cool!

It's more along the lines of Richard Linklater's "Slacker," in that it "follows" characters with a sort of drifting, dreamy, almost non-existent narrative. What is "Trash Humpers" about? That depends on who's watching it, I suppose. It's one of those movies that probably means something different to everybody who watches it.
To me, it's a statement on how the youth of today are going to turn out-- the way we see the geriatric hoodlums in this film. But my interpretation of the film isn't as important as the film itself. It was filmed on old VHS tapes and cut on a pair of VCRs, giving it a haunting, dream-like look that comes out particularly well in the nighttime scenes. Harmony Korine stated somewhere that he got the idea for the movie while walking his dog through an empty parking lot one evening and seeing the light shine down in beams through the darkness, illuminating the macadam-- "there's something... sinister about it," he said. And that's the core idea explored in this movie: the sinister things that go on beyond the views of normality, particularly in the night.
It's not everybody. People who enjoy movies starring Megan Fox trying to look pretty while giant robots fight in the background will not enjoy this movie, nor will people who want to argue who shot first: Han or Greedo. But people who enjoy existential philosophy, quantum physics, beat literature and avant-garde art house films will LOVE "Trash Humpers."
