This review is from: Spring Breakers [DVD]  (DVD)
Half way through this pseudo nihilist polished piece of excrement comes a tone that suggests a dark heart and the movie almost turns itself into a straight up horror especially with the cringey, unexpected turn from Franco( a whole star is solely reserved for him alone), which goes some way to telling you how absurd and dull the film tends to be. The trouble is it never really knows what it wants to be, i am all for the womanly form especially as a red blooded male but it is not high up on my list of priorities in what i want to see from a film. Clearly the director thinks it is. and then tries to add layers, atmosphere and impending doom to what started out as a frat-pack movie, a soft-core T and A flick.
It does push the cast members out of their stereotypes and one or two bizarre but highly watchable scenes are worth investing your time but i am not sure what the movie is trying to say? A hedonistic lifestyle keeps you young and vibrant or that there are people in these cultures that want to control, manipulate and vilify you. either way, it made very little sense. A strange beast then that at once angers and allures but it is Franco that makes the lasting impression. Deep throating hand-guns has been done before too!
