Harmony Korine Verenigde Staten, 2011

J. O.'s rating of the film Umshini Wam

Watched this countless times since its festival/online release in March and it's still unclear what is so appealing. The manic performances are believable and tender, while the pulsing electronic theme helps sway the film from wretchedly addictive to warm and heartfelt. It's absurd and it's sad, but over all else it's curious. A very interesting short.
