Here’s a quick lesson (learned second-hand, thank God) for all you aspiring romantics. When taking someone out on a first date, don’t go see Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers. No matter how cultural (or in this case, hipster) you think they are, a string of seemingly random scenes of actors dressed up like old people committing random acts of violence and having intercourse with barrels of trash is never romantic. As a general rule, if Netflix refuses to stock a movie, save it for the 3rd date, at least.
Now the latest generation of love birds can be disillusioned in terrifying new ways. The Wrap, confirming an earlier report from our own Hollywood Cog, is reporting that Marlon Wayans (G.I. Joe) has been cast as the lead in the arguably insane director’s newest movie, Twinkle, Twinkle. Wayans’ will be playing a hitman that dresses up like a dollar bill, most likely for reasons that only make sense in the Bosch-esk painting Korine calls a mind. It’s about a former hit man on parole crosses paths with two aging southern belles with a penchant for automatic weapons and cocaine. Of course, many of the leads are senior citizens (including the other major male lead), which suggests that Korrine will be donning the old man outfit again, and probably dangling his old man balls. He’s a classy fella.
The chances of me seeing this are quite slim, but I’m very curious what Korine’s bigger fans will think.
