The one-man machine known as James Franco stars in one of the more interesting films of 2013 — Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers. The film, released on Blu-Ray and DVD this week, follows a group of pseudo-typical college girls as they devolve into clever, ruthless criminals during a South Florida vacation.
Franco can morph into any role and does not let movie-goers down with this one. Even when sporting a gold grill and full-on prison braids, he's easy on the eyes. In one of the most compelling scenes in the movie, the gay-friendly actor (we'll call him hetero-queer) gives hardcore head to a loaded gun.
Artful, sometimes strange, Spring Breakers is a hypnotic experience. And though it's one of Korine's more accessible offerings, it still leaves plenty to contemplate — morality, loyalty, longing, and loss of innocence.
Starring pop sensations Vanessa Hudgens (in a breakout role worth noting), Selena Gomez, and Gucci Mane, and featuring a re-concevied Britney Spears pop ballad, among other musical points-of-interest, this just might be the must-see film everyone missed this year.
