actdafool

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.” In fact, to actually appreciate any of Korine’s work, you probably should ignore him and his ironic mouth-diarrhea all together.

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