In film wunderkind Harmony Korine’s directorial debut, GUMMO, we find an entire town devastated by a tornado and left to fend for itself. The population is living in destitution and the children are engaging in wildly destructive behavior. The film is horrifying, disturbing, and hypnotic in its depiction of a town without humanity.
The trailer for the film somehow packs the emotional resonance of the entire feature, and it uses my favorite Madonna song to boot. The film might not be for everyone, but at least watch the powerful trailer.
