James Franco Wrote The Best Review Of 'Spring Breakers'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"There will never be a movie or a character that is more important for this age than 'Spring Breakers' and its protagonist Alien." Those are the words of James Franco, who plays Alien in "Spring Breakers," as published by VICE on Friday.
Franco, who has written for VICE over the last several months, used his platform at the publication to review "Spring Breakers," and didn't hold back on praise for the film and its director, Harmony Korine. Harmony put it all in harmony. Twenty years after Kids, he has followed up his first zeitgeist film with a new portrait of the times. If Kids was neorealism, Spring Breakers is the neorealism of the Facebook age, chopped, screwed, and digitized. Where The Social Network was a movie about money, deals, greed, backstabbing, and the resulting court case—anything but the technology that defined the new way kids were socializing—Spring Breakers is the embodiment of such technological engagement. It is everything that we are today. You’re welcome.
