Did you guess it? :)
I am fairly confident that Spring Breakers is one of the most polarizing movies that I’ve ever experienced personally. I recall sitting in the theater on opening night surrounded by a bunch of 15 year olds who snuck in expecting a raunchy party comedy and then hearing them loudly sigh by the time James Franco’ repeating “sprang break foeva” for the fifteenth time. The second the first credit popped up, I saw people legitimately run for the door. I think I heard someone say “fuck this.” And I sat there, really unsure of what to make of what I just saw—but knowing that it was something I wasn’t going to forget. All of this is what makes Spring Breakers the movie that it is. This trippy, little art house movie scored Disney Stars and ABC Family Stars and was subsequently (and intentionally) mis-marketed, which managed to draw in the exact audience this film was trying to critique. I could probably write about this movie forever. It works on an allegorical and biblical level, even going as far as to quote Corinthians directly. I mean, Selena’s character is called Faith, so I assume this is pretty self explanatory. This movie is all about temptation. These girls are “bored” with their lives and want to experience something else—Spring Break is the pinnacle of their darkest and wildest fears. Alien, James Franco’s character, is essentially the devil. A fallen angel who has lost his wings (cue Britney Spears’ ‘Every Time’ — “and every time I try to fly I fall without my wings.” Oh yeah, and this is also the best scene in the entire movie.) The movie also deals directly with racism with a lot of subtle commentary littered throughout. One scene that sticks out in particular is the fact that Faith has no problem partying with thousands of random, drunk, drugged up white kids—but the second she gets around a group of black people, she freaks out. She complains she wants to leave and that “this isn’t what they came here for” and “she doesn’t know these people.” It’s hypocrisy and also speaks to the racist themes this movie touches upon. In addition to all this, it’s a social commentary not only on youth in general but simple human nature. It critiques our ideal and long sought after “American Dream.” Spring Breakers is about our hedonist desires—how in the end, we only care about what we want and our pleasure and it doesn’t matter what we do to get this. It’s about kids who are so desensitized to the world around them that they justify their immoral behavior by pretending it’s a video game. I’m sure there’s tons more to this movie underneath the surface that I have yet to grasp and may never fully understand either and that’s one of my favorite parts of it. Since the first night I saw it, I have always said this movie is not for everyone. Luckily, it’s for me. It has been about a year now and I still haven’t stopped thinking about it—and when that happens, you know it was well worth your time. From a technical standpoint, Spring Breakers, in my opinion, is nothing short of a masterpiece. The use of colors throughout the film is one of its high points. According to director Harmony Korine, the movie was shot to look like a violent pop Britney Spears music video and it’s edited to be reminiscent of a drug trip. The movie achieves its goal on both accounts and does so amazingly. People will always hate this movie. And there will be people who love it too and I just happen to be one of them. If you’re looking for a nice, standard movie then please turn away and never come back. But if you’re willing to enjoy Spring Breakers for what it is then you may get something out of it. I’d recommend it for the cinematography alone, along with the amazing editing and the score by Cliff Martinez and Skrillex that could not be any more fitting. This is a movie where the messages are buried under the surface but they are there if you choose. Essentially, it’s an hour and a half montage with very little, repetitive dialogue…but it is also the most unforgettable movie of 2013. And it was also my favorite movie of the year.
