If you prefer bikini-clad babes with guns, there’s Spring Breakers. It’s the kind of ‘experimental’ movie hailed as edgy, subversive and transgressive, when in fact it’s inept, amateurish and loathsome. When Harmony Korine wrote the exploitative youth-movie Kids, he was praised as an enfant terrible. Now he’s 40, he seems uncannily like a dirty old man. He’s hit on the commercially shrewd idea of persuading a couple of Disney starlets — Vanessa Hudgens (of High School Musical fame) and Selena Gomez (Wizards Of Waverly Place) — to wear bikinis for almost an entire film and act like lager louts on a spring break to Florida. They and two friends (Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine, the auteur’s extremely youthful wife) embark on a cocaine-fuelled, drink-sozzled, sex-crazed orgy of armed robbery and promiscuous sex. One girl has second thoughts. Another gets shot. The others just have a great time, killing people. James Franco takes the chance to wear gold teeth and an idiotic smile. He overacts like crazy as a would-be rapper-gangsta who is way too stupid to survive five minutes in any known underworld. Mr Korine does his best to ape the stylistic, gruesome excesses of Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers but he has no discernible talent or ideas of his own, nor the slightest concept of characterisation or narrative structure. The result is heavy-handed, repetitive and nowhere near as groundbreaking as Mr Korine and his acolytes think it is. Never has bad behaviour looked so boring.I'm so tired of seeing the same things every day," Faith, a college girl tells her friends. "I'm tired of driving past the same depressing houses every day." The cure for her ennui? The cure for those same feelings her friends, Brit, Candy and Cotty, are having? Spring break, of course. In St. Petersburg, Fla., of course. It's a goal they've been saving up for all year. But when the time finally arrives to go, they still don't have enough money. No worries, one girl suggests. We'll just rob a restaurant and make it happen. And so they do. (But it's important to note that Faith doesn't learn about the heist until after the fact.) A bus ride later, and the four young women land in a kind of secular promised land, one where the keg's never empty and the party never stops. Until, that is, a drug-filled bacchanal lands the girls in jail. They seem destined to pout through a two-day stint in the clink until they're bailed out by a rapping drug dealer named Alien. He was in court to buy back two of his lackeys, and they suggested he may as well give the girls a get-out-of-jail-free card too. But it's hardly free. Soon, Alien's seducing them into a world that's even seedier than the seedy places they've already been, an underworld of drugs and violence. Faith's unwilling to go any further, but the other three practically leap at the chance to become Alien's unlikely bikini-wearing henchmen in a turf war against a rival named Archie. It's a wilder ride than any they've ever had before. And it soon becomes clear that the wilder the ride, the more jarring the journey. And the more deadly the end. Positive Elements What do we do with reality when we don't like it? Spring Breakers, in a brash, bawdy way, addresses that question. Faith complains to her friends about how much she loathes her mundane life. In contrast, spring break represents a paradise of newness and pleasure for her. In a phone conversation with her grandmother, Faith gushes that it's "so nice to get a break from reality." But after getting arrested, Faith begins to lose faith in spring break's "salvific" promise. She tells her friends, "This is not fun. This not what it's supposed to be. I'm very uncomfortable. This is not what I signed up for." After Cotty gets shot in the arm, she also has a similar reality check. We're then left with the two really wild child characters, Candy and Brit, who are sliding as fast as they can down the Alien rabbit hole. They pay lip service to telling their parents that they're looking forward to coming home and trying to do better in their lives. But they've bought the fantasy Alien is selling, and they've checked into a hotel they can never leave. There's a lesson in that, and Spring Breakers does teach it. (Again, in a twisted, horribly sordid way. Read on.) Spiritual Content Faith, who wears a cross, attends a college group at a local church. A pastor says, "I can feel the presence of Almighty God in this room" and asks, "Are you jacked up on Jesus? I'm feeling the Almighty Jesus in this room." The group sits in a circle, praising God and clapping. Everyone, that is, except Faith, who's not clapping and looks unhappy. The pastor quotes 1 Corinthians 10:13, saying, "But when you are tempted, you will also be given a way out." He says that every temptation can be endured because God faithfully provides a way to resist. Faith later tells two other women that she's headed to Florida with Brit, Candy and Cotty. One woman labels her friends "demon blood" and "evil," and exhorts Fait
