Filmmaker Harmony Korine Opens Up on 'WTF' Podcast

Publish date:

Harmony Korine first showed up on the indie film world's radar at 18, with his script for the powerful and controvercial feature Kids, directed by Larry Clark. The film -- an odyssy through Manhattan, which deals frankly and fairly explicitely with teens and sex -- paved the way for Korine's directorial debut, Gummo, and a significant output including the wild-looking Spring Breakers.  Marc Maron sat down with Korine for an extended podcast.

Some of the cast of the 1995 movie that put Harmony Korine on the map:



Says Korine on technology: "You could never make [Kids] again, not because it's more difficult, but because there are more rules. Just narratively, you could never have her trying to find Telly, because now she would just grab a cell phone and text him. You can't really get lost in America anymore, you can't make a road movie anymore because everyone has GPS. It's impossible to lose yourself anymore."

On acting: "You can't make mistakes when you're inside the character, but you can still be not exciting. You can be authentic and boring. Like Gary Oldman's character in True Romance. You're so taken by it, you don't even question it."

On digital cinematography vs. film: " it when the actors think they have a limited amount of time to do it. There's a decisiveness to it. I hate this modern photography where you just leave the cameras on. There's no point of view. There's nothing exciting about that."
