  1. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Unconventionally beautiful and disturbing. It is a challenging film about the horrors of schizophrenia, the ability of disability, and the fragility of masculinity. The many possible interpretations prevent it from being merely offensive/iconoclastic. Laughter is often with the characters, but it changes to a self-conscious and uncomfortable laughter at them when the authority figure of the father (Herzog) appears.

  2. Jeff Campbell's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    If I was as stupid as this movie, I'd slap my own face.

  4. Trevor L. Charles's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Harmony Korine is the only punk rock film maker.

  5. spasmolytic's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    And curs-ed be he that sleeps with his sister, curs-ed be he.

  6. Daniel S.'s rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Dogma #6. Ewen Bremner's performance is riveting. Werner Herzog is ... Werner Herzog. Definitely worth a look. Recommended.

  7. Levi Miah's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Dysfunctional all the way down to it's image format composition, while treating some of the most misunderstood characters of our society with a softness rarely seen in American cinema. You don't need to intellectualise this film to enjoy it, just empathise.

  10. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

  11. Glue Sniffer's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Drugi, najlepszy moim zdaniem film reżysera. Klimatem nieco podobny do Gummo jednak bardziej konsekwentny jeżeli chodzi o skupienie się na jednej historii. Bardzo dobry!

  12. Antoinette A's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    'i don't like it because it's so artsy fartsy' - Werner Herzog

  13. ikkini's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Il était difficile de faire un film après Gummo. En acceptant une certaine modestie et rigueur, Harmony Korine réussit le pari de ne pas s'enfermer.

  14. Taufiq Hariyadi's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Best watched if you do not expect otherwise

  15. astygianelysium's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    a realist of the grotesque, Korine allows you to understand that normality is fragile to the point of its disintegration

  16. Jason Av's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Some of Korine's finest work. Definitely worth a watch for Werner Herzog's performance. 4/5

  17. lelandpalmer's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    you turned your left cheek to one of the disciples and said, "never hit me on my left side, because if you hit me on my left side, it hurts"

  18. AdrianM.'s rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    Open your mind like Joe does with her legs in Nymphomaniac

  19. Jimmi HRS's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    I could easily hate Korine's work for what I think makes a good film. Although what he is actually striving to accomplish in his films is catching a specific mood or ambience rather than telling a linear story, and in that he succeeds with flying colours. If you don't like Korine's films at least watch this to see Herzog drink Robitussin from a slipper.

  21. Michael's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

  22. El Biffo's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    One of the best films by America's leading arthouse director, Harmony Korine. Featuring Werner Herzog and Chloe Sevigny. "If I was a stupid as you I would slap myself in the face."

  23. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    A great critique of white trash America and the disturbing effects Church involvement has on society. Harmony Korine has created an outstanding film ahead of its time!

  24. Golden Tarot's rating of the film julien donkey-boy

    What an astounding film. This really blew me away. Such passion in the performances. Such beauty in the presentation. Such reality in the film. These are characters that you sympathize for, yet study deeply. The sound production also impressed me very much. Some very wild musical moments bring this dysfunction to life. The script is full of lines that will make you laugh, yet stop mid-way and think. Beautiful film!
