The Best Of ‘Spring Breakers’ Director Harmony Korine’s Contentious, Hilarious Reddit AMA

Whatever Harmony Korine is on, I want it. The Spring Breakers director, who hasn’t given a f*ck since he made a mole-faced kid eat spaghetti in a dirty bathtub, hosted a Reddit Ask Me Anything yesterday that was equal parts riot-inducing and riotous. He responded to questions in grammatically incorrect one-line sentences, if he even understood what the query was in the first place. But what separated his AMA from, say, Woody Harrelson’s is that 1) he was discussing a movie that’s a love letter to tits and drugs, and 2) his replies were hilarious.

Here’s some of his finest work.

Are we going to see lots of titties in the movie?

of course. thats what lifes about.


Good afternoon. I just wanted to say that the film, Kids, was great and taught me a lot about the dangers of unprotected sex. Thank you!

What is the point you are getting across in this film? What will society gain from this?

yes it will thrive because of this


Why did you choose Skrillex for the soundtrack?

because his music is pure energy. i wanted the film to be sensory and full attack with images and sounds coming from all directions. a pop poem


was Spring Breakers at all influenced by Tree of Life?

Is Harmony short for Harmonica?

I read somewhere that The Basketball Diaries author Jim Carroll was present at your birth and cut your umbilical cord. Any truth to this?

What has changed about the film/cinema industry since you got started?

cinema has changed. cinema is now a 30 second youtube clip. clear your mind. think of different now. make it bend to you. never use a walking stick, it looks doper to limp. catch my drift?


was there any reason for having such a strong emphasis placed on the social media campaigning for spring breakers?

it all becomes a sub narrative thread now. everything has been exploded. the film has tenticles everywhere. the movie exists in threads and shards


Tell us the funniest and craziest situation on the set.

i found a gay dude smoking menthols hidden in the floor boards of a motel
