Harmony Korine Soundtrack Hits
by Nick Murray | July 23, 2013
What other playlist could combine the extreme metal of Absu and Bathory, oldies from Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, the pummeling post-crunk Atlanta rap of Waka Flocka Flame, light IDM from Aphex Twin and Skrillex's drop-heavy dubstep? And who other than Harmony Korine, the screenwriter behind Kids and the director of Gummo, Mister Lonely and Spring Breakers, would include them all in their movies? The music in Korine's movies is not just background or ambiance but is as important as any character, the viewer's key to the twisted world his films depict. After the metal, dubstep and rap, don't miss Britney Spears' "Everytime," the tune that James Franco's Alien and company made into one of the unlikeliest big-screen sing-alongs in recent memory.
