Spring Breakers has received positive reviews. Review HERE! Annapurna Pictures announced that it has acquired the US distribution rights to Spring Breakers. Megan Ellison’s Annapurna is also included as an executive producer of the film.
We mentioned ‘Drive’ earlier, and in many ways this feels like the 2012 equivalent of last year’s crime cult picture (though certainly not as good), and not just because of the neon-lit cityscapes and Cliff Martinez score, it’s ultimately a fairly thin, pulpy crime tale, given more substance than it should have on paper thanks to some excellent filmmaking.
It’s unlikely to make Korine’s hardcore fans happy (it almost feels like a statement from the director, for better or worse, that he’s ready to stop dicking around and make ‘proper’ films), but midnight movie programmers of the future will undoubtedly give it a long life years after it’s gone from first-run theaters.
