The Torch of Invention Still Burns

I don't usually freak out over a new movie... because if you're so wound up and push your expectations through the roof, nothing can measure up to your imposed hype. But Mister Lonely has me bordering on insanity. Just look at this picture.

Gummo and Julien Donkey-Boy, and even Kids for that matter, are still as interesting now as they were the first time I watched them. And the man behind all three, Harmony Korine, is making this one too. It should be noted that he's off drugs, which may or may not help with the film's overall aesthetics and coherence (inversely, probably). Anyway, if you're curious as to what's going on in the picture- Diego Luna plays a Michael Jackson impersonator who is living on a commune with other celebrity impersonators (one for Madonna, one for the Pope, etc).

Check it out at Wikipedia or filmpressplus (a little hunting required on fpp)
