Spring Breakers

Spring Breakers ★★★½

It's hard to come up with a review for this film. I definitely appreciate the film, but I'm rather split on whether I like this film or not and whether I find this to be a good film or not. I do like the visuals and the criticism it provides on the work hard, play hard mentality of American society. However, I didn't like different aspects of the plot and story and the artistic editing and cinematography just didn't sit well with me at times for some reason. I know in a film like this that the story and characters are tools for the advancement of the themes and commentaries, but I guess I just haven't seen enough films to really enjoy this as much as I should. This film went down good but is leaving somewhat of a bad taste in my mouth for some reason. Maybe that's what the director was ultimately going for, but it's not the film I'm finding fault with just some irrationalities I found that I can't explain. I definitely think this is a film worth seeing and I recommend it, but make sure to keep an opening mind while viewing.
