Harmony Korine Out Harmony Korines Himself

Trash Humpers trailer, you guys:

Uh. I would say that I consider myself a Harmony Korine “fan,” but this looks completely unwatchable. It’s just a trailer, or something that is supposed to resemble a trailer, so I could be wrong! But I could just as easily not be even close to wrong. And what is this official description?

A film unearthed from the buried landscape of the American nightmare, TRASH HUMPERS follows a small group of elderly Peeping Toms through the shadows and margins of an unfamiliar world. Crudely documented by the participants themselves, we follow the debased and shocking actions of a group of true sociopaths the likes of which have never been seen before. Inhabiting a world of broken dreams and beyond the limits of morality they crash against a torn and frayed America. Bordering on an ode to vandalism,it is a new type of horror; palpable and raw.

That is easily the most pretentious paragraph that has ever been copied and pasted into a YouTube description field ever. Crash THIS against a torn and frayed America. (Thanks for the tip, Lidia.)
