    ‘Gummo’ is cruel yet often quite moving

    Gobsmackingly brilliant; Gummo marks the directorial debut of Kids writer and indie bad boy Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers, Trash Humpers). Upon its initial release, Gummo drew critical fire and Korine was denounced as an exploitative brat with a movie camera. More
