Harmony Korine to VARIETY on Spring Breakers movie: ‘Technically, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. We had 12 cameras break; cranes collapsing; boats sinking; at some points, there would be more paparazzi than crew members; you’d have news helicopters entering the shot;
1,000 screaming teenagers with signs trying to destroy the campers, every day felt like some mild form of warfare. I wanted things to look and feel incredible. It would have been much easier if I didn’t have ambition. This film is different from anything I’ve done. It’s the narrative: It’s very liquid and boozy, and freed up. It’s more like a pop poem.
Selena: ‘Obviously, I have a younger generation (of fans), and I really appreciate that. I want to respect that and I still want to do things that will earn me that respect. But I also want to do things that challenge me and put me out of my element.’ Korine: ‘I liked the idea of having these girls in the film specifically.
They are of this pop culture, and that added a whole new element that was exciting for me.’ Chris Hanley: ‘Even as the intention was to make a pop commercial bikini movie. it has its intelligent side, (which) shows there is an underworld to every seemingly perfect and happy setting. So while it is commercial, it makes you think a lot too, this is something Harmony does very well.’ Ashley Benson, ‘I’ve seen Spring Breakers, it’s unreal..’
