FILM GUMMO (1997, USA)
Gummo is a 1997 American independent drama written and directed by Harmony Korine. The film is a series of seemingly unrelated vignettes depicting the hopeless, nihilistic lives of the residents of Xenia, Ohio, a small Midwestern town that had been previously struck by a devastating tornado.
Bacon taped to the wall?
Werner Herzog told the New York Times "When I saw a piece of fried bacon fixed to the bathroom wall in Gummo, it knocked me off my chair. Korine's a very clear voice of a generation of filmmakers that is taking a new position. It's not going to dominate world cinema, but so what?"
