It’s way past Spring Break, but Harmony Korine’s latest controversial movie “Spring Breakers” is now available on most home video platforms. Korine, who has a signature of showing the not-so-nice aspects of life in films like “Kids” and “Julien Donkey-Boy”, returns to show us the dark side of the college ritual of Spring Break. Along the way he corrupts the images of former Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens along with handing James Franco one of his more low-life performances. Franco’s character seems like it would’ve been written for Heath Ledger, but Franco does a fine job in it.
