Only years-old when he directed his extraordinary debut feature Gummo , Harmony Korine has since continued to serve notice that he is the riskiest, most radical young talent in independent US film. This collection of three screenplays displays his defiantly unorthodox approach to film form, as well as the unclassifiable imaginative energy that drives all of his work. Get A Copy.

Jan 07, Matt Margo rated it it was amazing Shelves: five-star , fiction , drama. There is a somehow hypnotic and projective quality about all of Harmony Korine's works. What is presented never ceases to be both stunningly beautiful and unbearably ugly simultaneously.
Another reason is that the film succeeds radiantly at inventing and presenting a world that is bo There is a somehow hypnotic and projective quality about all of Harmony Korine's works. I had originally purchased this book mainly to read the original screenplay for "Gummo. The transcript of "julien donkey-boy" that concludes the collection does not serve much justice to the film.
It is widely believed that the transcript was not even written by Korine. Otherwise, this is a marvelous treasure for any fan or enemy of Korine's films. I do recommend watching the actual movies beforehand sans "Jokes," which was never completed , but this is a must-read collection that helps to explore Harmony Korine's works further for all of his fans.

It took me years to "get" Harmony Korine; to watch Gummo past the opening narration; to understand that his work is full of heart and free of judgment.
It's almost impossible to articulate why Harmony is great because that's an understanding someone has to approach on their own, when discomfort regarding his work turns into understanding and finally turns into admiration. All of the work is absurd, sure -- but I agree when Harmon This arrived in the mail yesterday and I finished it within hours. All of the work is absurd, sure -- but I agree when Harmony calls his work realist. You could encounter his characters anywhere; perhaps you've even lived some of the experiences he details.
I was really put off by his introduction to "Jokes," but I fell in love with it when I read it and I'm sad it was never fully realized as a film. His characters, despite their strange circumstances, feel real.
Their struggles feel real. His scene detail in the scripts is imaginative, but always grounded. Harmony doesn't stray from reality, even when it's ugly. But when it's ugly, he doesn't judge. In these screenplays, Kids, and the films of his I've seen, he doesn't ever seem to judge.
He highlights that it's not his job to preach a moral narrative and I agree. He's not trying to tell you anything. He doesn't exploit his characters to serve some preachy purpose. People are as they are, strange as they may be, and Harmony bears witness to it. Yeah, I get it, everyone hates that "Harmony Korine fan" but I just really love him, ok?
Harmony doesn't judge. Aug 05, Bad-at-reading rated it really liked it Shelves: film. Gummo does not have much of a script. The rabbit scene is free of cussing and set on a front lawn instead of in a junkyard. The chair-wrestling scene that's easily the film's funniest moment is not mentioned, and was probably a spontaneous moment on set. With these and many, many other scenes in truncated form or not appearing at all, something surprising emerges: the genuinely compelling and sad story of three sisters' search for their missing cat.
I think Gummo the film benefits greatly from i Gummo does not have much of a script. In light of this, it becomes clear the best adjective to describe Gummo is not "weird", "gross" or "difficult", but "miraculous". No one but Korine could have filmed the script to such an accomplished, unique, and important result; the mark of a true auteur.
In Julien Donkey-Boy Korine's sociological side that heavily informs Kids and Spring Breakers, and Gummo to a subtler extent falls away, leaving an outlandish but naturalistic tale of abuse and tragedy.
The "script" here is just a list of vague descriptions of scenes, that were hashed out and improvised during shooting the long-form "screenplay" seems to be merely a transcript of the film. The fact that it turned out so cohesive and watchable is, again, miraculous.
It's my favorite of Korine's films so far, and very underrated. Jokes, never filmed, seems like a minor work, though so did Gummo, on paper. It's two unconnected short stories, each very loosely inspired by a corny one-liner joke. Korine has used the lost art of vaudeville for pathos before, through allusions in Gummo, and centrally and explicitly later, in Mister Lonely.
Jokes splits the difference. Its characters and narratives aren't particularly interesting or affecting, but who knows how it might have been expanded in execution. All three of these scripts provide valuable insight into Harmony Korine's creative process and are essential reading for those who enjoy his films. The smarmy, affected quirkiness of his introduction to the book is rather off-putting, though. Perhaps he is good at making films but not much else.
Jul 13, RB rated it it was amazing. If you're a fan of Harmony Korine, you're going to want to pick this collection up for a number of reasons.
Firstly, the written scripts are not the finished films: "Gummo" as a screenplay lacks many of memorable scenes that ended up in the movie and also includes different settings and dialogue for the scenes kept in. The "Gummo" screenplay is melancholic and more focused than the movie, basically it's the story of a few sisters searching for a missing cat after the storm.
Secondly, "Jokes" was If you're a fan of Harmony Korine, you're going to want to pick this collection up for a number of reasons. Secondly, "Jokes" was never completed. In fact, if you want to see what this project looked like, check out the recent book released about Gus Van Sant called "Icons", where you will find stills from the movies.
Lastly, these scripts are pure Korine in a very messed up period of his life. There's nothing glamorous or fun about being hooked to smack but to read these scripts knowing how whacked Korine was at the time should shed some light on just how talented this guy is: through an immense opiate fog, Korine is able to be more true, absurd, and beautifully asinine than most sober writers of his generation.

Collected Screenplays 1: Jokes / Gummo / julien donkey-boy
CNN -- Back in , Harmony Korine, a fledgling writer who was barely out of high school, got to play minor celebrity for a few weeks as the country debated the difficult-to-find merits of his first screenplay, the Larry Clark-directed atrocity known as "Kids. It's now time, of course, for the enfant terrible to spread his wings and journey out on his own. Hold on to your hats, folks. Our little Harmony has written and directed his first movie.
