The Good, The Bad, The WTF: The “Spring Breakers” LA Premiere

By: Julie Gerstein / March 15, 2013

Imagine the shitshow it must be to be married to Harmony Korine. I’ve disliked his work (aside from this awesome Proenza Schouler campaign video) since “Gummo,” which I found to be extremely exploitative and revolting. That said, this new Korine work, “Spring Breakers,” is getting fairly good reviews across the board. Assholes like it. Non-assholes like it. I may give it a chance, but like, an “on demand” or “Netflix” chance, not a spend-$14-on-a-ticket chance. Thursday night, Korine and his actor pals gathered at Cinespace for the film’s Los Angeles premiere. But you know what? Considering this is their home turf, most of the actresses — barring Selena Gomez — didn’t really bring their A-game. Disagree with me? Share your thoughts in the comments!
