  • Summary: Harmony Korine’s lastest film -- Trash Humpers -- follows a gang of old-faced degenerates, wandering through the streets of a suburbia, f---king shit and f---ing shit up. Korine conjures this perverse artifact with an abrasiveness that only shooting on VHS tape can convey, with tracking issues, drop-outs and boxy, in-camera microphones crushing the sonic climate. In fact, Trash Humpers is a film that destroys the structure and content of anything conventional, which should be enough to satisfy you b**tards. Hopefully, it will stain your mind with its crude images and happy creeps, or at least haunt you with their maniacal hoot and cackle. (Drag City) Collapse

    While the results were probably never designed to win over his detractors, Trash Humpers is almost a perverted love letter to fans of his brand of unstable, fringe-y terror.

    Defiantly unwatchable if occasionally transfixing, the film is essentially the home movies of three marauding burnouts.

    Trash Humpers projects a cranky resignation to the world as it is; still, it's picturesque.
  4. Idolized in some quarters and reviled in others, Mr. Korine, now 37, may be a bit long in the tooth for the enfant terrible act.

    A often grim vaudeville parade of Nashville's oddballs and ne'er-do-wells.

    If this is what passes for contemporary art terrorism, we’ll opt instead for something truly subversive--like genuine art
  7. 0
    A mind-numbing piece of would-be provocation from the button-pushing Harmony Korine, Trash Humpers gets no stars from me -- not because it's offensive and disgusting like his earlier "Gummo" and "Julien Donkey-Boy," but because it's about as enervating a way to waste 78 minutes as I've ever experienced.

    Love it like delsym,very trippy I thrive off this "fake" art. It's a perfect film, why not watch it? I There is elderly degenerates running through the streets at night taking trash as victims. Most films bore me, im just a fan of horrible movies. Expand
