Pick of the Week

Spring Breakers (Lionsgate) — Harmony Korine’s first multiplex mini-breakout is a pop-cultural fire-starter that will hopefully enable him to keep working on a larger-than-smaller scale in the future. As for Spring Breakers, it makes for an at-times thrilling and all-times complicated viewing experience, which you must see for yourself if you haven’t already. Read my own complicated HTN review. Available on DVD + Digital UltraViolet, Blu-ray + Digital UltraViolet, and at Amazon Instant.
