TIFF 2009 MUST SEE LIST: Trash Humpers
#1. TRASH HUMPERS
Director: Harmony Korine
Cast: Rachel Korine, Brian Kotzue, Travis Nicholson, Harmony Korine
The last film by Harmony Korine Mister Lonely almost made it’s way into my 2009 top 10 list ranking at number 15. The buzz on his latest film has it compared to the works of William Eggleston and his video piece Stranded in Canton. Described as a down n’ dirty, lo-fi project or: “handheld video of a loser-gang cult-freak collective who do antisocial things in a non-narrative way, except for the song-and-dance numbers.”
Here is a video of Korine and his frequent collaborator Werner Herzog whom he is often compared to.
