114 – Julien Donkey-Boy (1999)

Standard

Director: Harmony Korine Starring: Ewan Bremner, Chloë Sevigny, Werner Herzog, Evan Neumann Running time: 94 mins

Subject: Werner Herzog plays distressingly mean head of a family that includes schizophrenic Julien, knocked-up Pearl and wannabe wrestler Chris. Fuzzy vignettes from the characters’ daily lives alternate tonally between serene and awful in the way that Harmony Korine does so well.

 Like: Being hosed down with ice-cold water

Core truth: There are some conditions in which one should not go ice-skating.
