Country: United States
Language: English (Eng Subs)
Runtime: 01:29:03
Genres: Teensploitation, Violence Against Animals, Gay-CrossDressing-Transsexual, Depressing, Old-Young

Plot – Spoilers:
Set in an Ohio town a few years after a destructive tornado, Gummo captures the despondent lives of some of the residents, particularly the teenagers.

Tummler and Solomon are friends, more importantly, business partners – they kill cats and sell them. There isn’t much else of a plot. Instead, through short vignettes we get a sense of the mood in the town. There are scenes of animal cruelty, underage sexual activity including Chloe Sevigny who plays the oldest teen sister kissing a young mute in a bunny hat and Solomon having a meal while in a dirty tub.

Depending on your personal experiences, you will see the characters in Gummo as pathetic lowlifes or feel a sense of empathy and sympathy for them.

Movie quality is good, but I was let down with the lack of follow through of what appeared to be effed up scenes. Good movie if you are an artsy film student.

This movie is insane, but charming in a way.
There are alot of interesting/zany scenes, the plot is non-existant and the characters are kinda of captivating/entertaining (fav had to be Tummler), even if some of are sad wretched/pitiful lowlifes or bunch of weirdos.
This movie is quite insane, but I recommend if you like Harmony’s work/John Water’s kind of movie !! >:^]

Watched this movie awhile back and watching it again for old times sake, absolutely love this movie, it’s the most unique experience you will have. The movie reaches deeep within the roots of some of the most depressing places that really exist in our world today, daring, disgusting, and real. 10/10

easily classic. made me laugh and was a take on childhood but also had some more serious and complex parts.
the bath scene seriously lives up to expectation, seeing it in the context of the movie after I saw that clip alone before seeing the movie made it totally different. without context it was just sad and gross, but korine built the setting really well so at a couple points it felt very sweet.
also the clothing choices are great! especially the albino woman and of course the rabbit’s iconic ears.

This movie was absolutely beautiful. It is one of the most touching and fucked up films I have ever seen although it doesnt show gore or blood as many others. It showed something so disturbing of reality like a beautfiful dream. Thanks a lot for creating this site, I had been searching for this film for a long time.

I didn’t get it. Is everyone trash and retarded? Is that the story?
Only thing I liked was the Bathory song midway thru

This film was elegantly wasted, mirth aside it contained affectionate characters and unshrouded simplicity, gorgeously depicted.

I’m not gonna lie and say it’s the best film i’ve seen but it was entertaining to watch I liked the aesthetic and the music choices are great. It’s cool movies like this are made.

just seems like some white indie bullshit for aesthetic, it was alright but just reminds me a bit of abstract art

This movie hot the spot for me. No plot. None necessary. Weird enough to make me feel just a bit “icky.”

Apart from the odd-faced actor this film is just trash. Having not seen it for a long time it feels like it should have been made a decade before it was. Bath scene, ..Steptoe and Son.. .
It has definitely lost its shock-value over time.
