Harmony Korine’s Act da Fool: “Church Can Suck It”

09.02.10 Marina Galperina

Harmony Korine’s fashion short Act da Fool is now online. Is Korine exploiting poverty by using it as an art prop? Or is he provocatively forcing reality onto the fashion world? You decide.

The film is shot beautifully. Shticky aesthetics aside, the “fuck this town” soliloquy could have been better if Korine didn’t script it himself trying to be all “authentic.”

Note: the quality is a bit sharper on the site.
