Synopsis

Moondog is a fun-loving, pot-smoking, beer-drinking poet who lives life on his own terms in Florida. One day, a tragic accident brings unexpected changes to his footloose lifestyle. Suddenly, finishing his next book is a more pressing matter than he would have liked it to be.

Our take

Photos of Matthew McConaughey’s lurid aesthetic from the set of The Beach Bum became an instant internet sensation. Drenched in South Florida’s aura, Harmony Korine’s lively film doesn’t disappoint, offering a joyous shaggy-dog story that is fearlessly committed to its cast of eccentric characters.
