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 !! >:^]
