THE RETURN OF HEATWAVE!
Heat Wave at the Revue Cinema, a lineup of the greatest summer movies ever made, continues on July 29th with SPRING BREAKERS with an introduction by Brendan Ross!
“Spring break forever, bitches”
Harmony Korine’s sweaty, humid, dubstepping “beach noir” turns 10! A complete career redirection for Korine (Gummo, Julien-Donkey Boy) and the film that put A24 on the map, SPRING BREAKERS sent shockwaves through the film scene in 2013 and is still just as abrasive and scandalizing today.
Four broke college girls—two Disney stars (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens), a Pretty Little Liar (Ashley Benson), and Korine’s own wife (Rachel Korine) pull off a heist to finance their spring break escape. Arrested almost immediately after arriving in Florida, they are bailed out by Alien (James Franco), a whimsical rapper and drug dealer, who leads them into a downward spiral of crime and debauchery.
The ultimate viber of the 2010’s and a pertinent sign-of-our-times thriller, SPRING BREAKERS is a descent into neon and glowstick hell (aka St. Petersburg, Florida). Perhaps best described by Emma Seligman of The Huffington Post as “Scarface meets Britney Spears”, this is one wild and unforgettable ride that must be seen in a theatrical setting. Be sure to dress appropriately! (BRENDAN ROSS)
