Spring Breakers

Spring Breakers ★★★★★

Second time, loved it just as much, am now thinking that I am closer to understand the meaning of it. It has something to do with the collective hallucination of image-conscious youth culture, and the callousness and ability of middle-class, never-had-to-work-a-day-in-their-life young people to wreak all the havoc they want away from home and then go back to their cushy middle-class, never-had-to-work-a-day-in-their-life existences, if they so choose. They literally leave bodies in their wake, but remain completely unscathed. Or something.

Whatever the case, it is awesome, and the Britney Spears sequence blew my mind all over again. My older brother, who I went to see it with, absolutely hated everything about it. Oh well, different strokes for different folks!
