Consensus: Spring Breakers blends stinging social commentary with bikini cheesecake and a bravura James Franco performance.

Grantland

The movie is too calculated to shock. Korine just wants to be the danger he's warning us about.

Neon bright and all raw energy, Spring Breakers is a pulsating paradox of a movie, both a tangerine dream and a cultural reality check, a pop artifact that simultaneously exploits and explores the shallowness of pop artifacts.

Spring Breakers is titillating and absurd and vulgar and, perhaps most importantly, entertaining.

A trippy, florescent whirl of boobs and bongs.

Korine's story is a searing indictment of today's hedonistic, nihilistic youth, and his script is loaded with sharp, telling dialogue that exposes the rotten moral cores of its characters.

This strange film by Harmonie Korine will enrage and baffle many. But as a cinematic experience I included it among my top five films when it first came out last year this is a long, mad, fevered reverie that sucks you in and showers you with acid vomit.

Behind the film's vacuous candy-colored outer shell are ambiguous and morally challenging concepts.

With this unbearable, pointless turd that is all style but no substance, Harmony Korine attests (once again) to what an awful director he is, so obvious about… More

Somewhere between a mindless music video and Terence Malick... grotesque, compelling cinema (European in style, kind of like Drive was) that uses little… More

Very interesting. Starts off all dumb drunk teens doing dumb drunk things, but soon turns very dark. I would like to watch this again before commenting fully.

Exploitation of the youth market is nothing new, nor is the same masquerading as social commentary. The only rarity is how well Harmony Korine manages this… More

Four college students resort to robbery to fund a spring break trip to Florida. Lacking almost all restraint, director Harmony Korine fashions a didactic drama… More
