The script of Harmony Korine's new movie The Beach Bum.
“Moondog is the greatest poet in the history of Key West.
I read a few of these pages and loved every minute of it.”
The Beach Bum follows the outrageous misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious burnout who only knows how to live life by his own rules. Complete with an all-star cast including Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jimmy Buffett, Martin Lawrence and Jonah Hill, The Beach Bum is the wildly original and subversive new comedy from writer/director Harmony Korine.
Harmony Korine is one of the most significant artists of his generation. After emerging onto the world stage in the 1990's as a screenwriter (Kids
) and director (Gummo
; Julien Donkey-Boy
), his intuitive, open-ended approach to realism created a polarizing fervor amongst critics.
Lesser known but no less relevant are Korine's experiments outside the world of cinema
. A Crack-up At The Race Riots
, his first book, adapted the possibilities of his brand of montage to text. Numerous collaborations with other artists (such as Christopher Wool
, Brian DeGraw, Gus Van Sant and Mark Gonzales
) further stretched Korine's imagination into realms of formalized abstraction, vaudeville, black metal nihilism, and ambient soundscapes.
