Trash Humpers, now at the Hollywood Theater


Trash Humpers (2009)
Director: Harmony Korine
With: Harmony Korine, Rachel Korine, Charles Ezell, Chris Gantry, etc.

Harmony Korine is a talented film-maker with a big flaw: he can’t get past his need to be shocking and/or confounding to his audience.  Unless I miss my guess at just who his audience is.  There are those who consider him a genius, and not a misguided snotnose.
He is like a kid who writes dirty words on walls with brilliant penmanship.  No matter how admirable the craft, it’s still just a bunch of self-indulgent crap.

Solitary Man
Director: Brian Koppelman & David Levien
With: Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Jenna Fischer, Danny DeVito, Mary-Louise Parker, Imogen Poots, Jesse Eisenberg

Despite the trite set-up and the workman-like directing, the film rises on the strength of the acting.  There is a surprise, or two, in the story, but you can see what’s coming almost from the beginning.
Ben Kalmen (Douglas) is a 60-year-old former auto dealer who used to be the biggest in the NY area, but he has lost everything because of personal failings, including his wife (Sarandon).  Among these failings is being unfaithful to any woman he is involved with, and which he self-justifies because he may die at any time.
