DVD/Blu-ray Release: Spring Breakers

July 9, 2013

Spring Breakers Blu-ray CoverThis is just a quick note to remind everyone that VVS Films is releasing Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers on Blu-ray & DVD today.  Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty (Rachel Korine) all dream of going to Florida for spring break.  But when the girls are arrested after a wild night in the Sunshine State, they are bailed out by Alien (James Franco), a rapping gangsta who drags them into the seedy underworld just below the surface of the party scene.

People will view Spring Breakers as either a cynical skewering of modern culture, or a celebration of depraved behaviour.  But the debate of whether or not this stylistic facade gives way to a deeper deconstruction of pop culture is reason enough to recommend watching the film for yourself.  Yesterday I devoted an entire article to whether Spring Breakers has actual substance beneath the style, and you can read my full thoughts on the film right here.

The Blu-ray includes audio commentary and deleted scenes as well as several “behind the scenes” featurettes, including one on the memorable use of music in the film.

Spring Breakers is 94 minutes and rated 18A.
