Spring Breakers Director Harmony Korine Just Did The Best Reddit AMA Ever
For actors and directors promoting a new movie, a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" thread has quickly gone from weird internet novelty to necessary stop on the publicity tour. As such, these Q and As with Reddit users have come to be often as dull and predictable as an old-school press junket.
That's what makes the Ask Me Anything of Spring Breakers director Harmony Korine's so great. It's unclear if he's on or off something but his typo-and-non-sequitur-filled performance in his AMA today was inspired. The only way to resist the insufferable PR machine is clogging it with pure nonsense. Here are a bunch of his answers:
