From the mind that brought us ‘Spring Breakers’ comes Matthew McConaughey in a role that may prove to be his ‘Big Lebowski.’
The latest from Harmony Korine, the gnarly auteur who brought the world Spring Breakers, Trash Humpers, Gummo, and Julien Donkey-Boy (to say nothing of his brutally honest and yet sensationalized screenplays for Larry Clark’s Kids and Bully) The Beach Bum is almost upon us. At the very least, 2019 can’t arrive soon enough.
Starring Matthew McConaughey in a role he was either born or sentenced to play, the redband trailer looks appropriately drugged out and soaked in neon (unsurprising given the film’s theatrical distributor: NEON). It also packs in a solid number of quotable lines in just a few seconds courtesy of Mr. McConaughey and yes, Snoop Dogg. Check it out below.
It’s interesting to see how Korine has grown into a filmmaker with such a sustainable career, his projects ranging from gritty, low-budget endeavors shot on home video cameras to larger-budgeted features starring Disney Channel notables and Academy Award winners.
