No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Harmony Korine
Starring: Jacob Reynolds (Solomon), Nick Sutton (Tummler), Chloe Sevigny (Dot), Carisa Glucksman (Helen), Darby Dougherty (Darby), Jacob Sewell (Bunny Boy)
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.

You know the world is not the west right? If your gay you should probably stay in the west before you find out the hard way you’re not welcome on the outside. I’m not anti gay. Just being real with you bro. Africa, Asia, eastern europ, Middle East, many parts of Latin America. I think you’re just now discovering real opinions when there’s not censorship.

But lying is a choice. If American voters had known that Michelle Obama was a man before they voted, Barrack would have never become the president and he would not be in charge of America now. Great job he’s doing. $5 a gallon gas, sky high grocery prices, all-time high crime rate, Pelosi gets off scott free for insider trading, impending recession and transgender fuck head Lia Thomas becomes “Woman of the Year.” Before the Obama men got in to the White House there was never talk about having bathrooms where men wearing women’s clothing were allowed to take a shit in the same bathroom as a 10 year old girl. The “first lady” Michelle has a lot to do with that because she is a transgender male and a non-birthing person (the Obama kids were adopted – no baby pictures). Joan Rivers mysteriously died 2 weeks after pointing out that Michelle is a gay man.
Just tell the truth, you fucking assholes, and let individuals decide. Better yet, if you want to be a cross dressing fuck head and jack off to pictures of bug-eyed retard Lori Lightfoot, do it in the privacy of your own home and don’t force your retarded ways on others. Joe Biden wept at the leader of the KKK’s funeral while he delivered the eulogy and said Robert Byrd was his “best friend and mentor.” Even though Biden did that, democrat fucking assholes still love him and say Trump is a racist, even though Trump has never done or said anything racist in his whole life (If he has just go ahead and prove it right now). The whole world is topsy-turvy now because of the gay Obama men and their best friend gay boy Jussie Smolett, another lying fucking asshole who should be locked in prison.

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 have high functioning autism, i guess you could call me retarded. alot of retarded people are cool yknow. nicer than you are id say. this is one of my favourite movies ever and the whole thing drips with the pain and sorrow of this world that people want to ignore, and pushes it to the forefront of your mind. such different situations all in one place, such different people. the agony of it all that is displayed in such a nonchalant way, is also what makes it beautiful.

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

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