Anonymous said: Do you think Gummo has a meaning behind it? And why do you enjoy harmony films so much
in my opinion, the main theme of gummo is nihilism and its aimlessness is its meaning - harmony wanted to push the boundaries of filmmaking forwards and he did so by creating a collage of images that did not build a standard-issue plotline but instead built characters out of nothing. there are also like, empty pop-culture references which relate to his commentary on american youth and identification. he quotes:
”America is all about this recycling, this interpretation of pop. I want you to see these kids wearing Bone Thugs & Harmony t-shirts and Metallica hats - this almost schizophrenic identification with popular imagery. If you think about, that’s how people relate to each other these days, through these images.”
i enjoy his films so much because he really does push the boundaries. I’ve hardly ever seen a filmmaker as reckless and unafraid to try new techniques. His movies are often panned and people often do not understand them but they strike a certain dissonant chord. He likes to shock, but he doesn’t give cheap thrills. He is truly one of the most influential filmmakers of the modern age.
