Thanks in large part to the teeny-bopper cast (Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Heather Morris), it’s almost a given that Harmony Korine‘s new film has more mainstream appeal than anything he’s ever done — something that’s also a given in and of itself, actually.
But I wasn’t expecting this to look like a tropical Project X, for God’s sake. In set photos snapped by The Daily Mail — and an accompanying video compiled by passer-by — we’re given a glimpse of the film’s spring break mayhem, wherein Gomez, Benson, and Hudgens can be seen partying it up and preparing for a heist, all in the company of scantily-clad young ladies. On that heist note: the actual plot (something Korine hasn’t often concerned himself with) follows “four college-aged girls who rob a fast food restaurant to afford spring break in Florida, only to get arrested upon their arrival.” A drug dealer named Alien (James Franco) will save the day — if they kill his sworn enemy, Arch. The filmmaker’s wife, Rachel, also takes part, and can be seen in some of the photos as well.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
