Trash Humpers

Directed by Harmony Korine
United States, United Kingdom, 2009
Drama, Avant-Garde

A film unearthed from the buried landscape of the American nightmare, Trash Humpers follows a small group of elderly “Peeping Toms” through the shadows and margins of an unfamiliar world. The participants themselves, as true sociopaths, crudely document their debased and shocking actions.

Critics reviews

I could have chosen Korine’s Spring Breakers, his breakout, quasi-mainstream-yet-still-practically-experimental film, but I like this more obscure, underground, definitely experimental, shot-with-a-VHS-camera film of his even better. The crazy thing is, he actually makes an incoherent, grotesque tale of characters wearing old people masks emotionally affecting.
