Korine Harmony is known mostly for writing Kids and directing Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy and Trash Humpers. His films have been called original, risky, brilliant, grotesque; certainly they are not meant to be pleasant.

We all have our bad days when we wake up and things just aren’t right. And those weeks that seem to drag on forever and it just feels like a pit of hell that some cruel, evil being has bestowed upon you.
