Spring Breakers

Youthful angst. Is it a worthwhile topic? Maybe, but the ratio of excellent examinations to abject failures is a daunting one. Every writer who’s ever felt isolated in high school (read: every writer) has taken a stab at writing a story about the boredom of being young and unhappy, but few have captured it in a way that makes young people sound interesting. After Kids, Harmony Korine earned full faith and credit when it comes to the topic, but this first clip for Spring Breakers – featuring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine – is about as exciting as watching the brown grass grow.

What does it all mean, man?

Spring Breakers is playing the Venice Film Festival soon and currently looking for a US release. The plot, which includes the college-age misfits robbing a store, getting arrested and potentially killing someone promises at least a bit more excitement than this clip shows.

On the other hand, it’s a nice counterpart to the non-stop bikini pictures being trotted out in support of the movie. Maybe it will end up being thoughtful in a two-piece with sirens blaring in the background.
