The Beach Bum
First screened in June 2019
Director: Harmony Korine. Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Jimmy Buffett, Stefania LaVie Owen, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Martin Lawrence. Screenplay: Harmony Korine.

Twitter Capsule: Spirit careens between buoyant and cruel. Visuals consistently impress. Mileage will certainly vary. Matthew floats.

VOR:   An unusual character study, with a rare aesthetic, spirit, and point of view—except Korine himself has taken us down these neon paths before.
