Spring Breakers

Spring Breakers ★★★★

Spring Breakers feels like one crazy, hypnotic dream, from its use of colours to its loud, insane score that ranges from frolic party fun to atmospheric, moody pieces that underline the darker moments in the film. The narrative jumps around in time and space, pasted together through flashbacks, flash forwards, and repetitive lines that linger in the back of the viewer's mind like a broken record. The cinematography is flat out excellent and Korine and his crew make perfect use of the beautiful Florida scenery amidst all the sheer depravity we witness on screen, with more than a few shots of the beautiful Florida sky and sunset to remind us of our humanity.

Bright lights and neon bikinis can only last so long before the bleak world comes hurtling upon you.
