Gummo: Marvelous Persona


Gummo: Marvelous Persona

This classic opener from Gummo, Harmony Korine’s 1997 movie about some straight derelict kids living in Ohio, is something to live up to. If you haven’t caught this one yet, do so. It’ll take a few rotations to finally “get it” but it’s well worth it.

“Ride the dragon toward the crimson eye
Flap the wings under Mars red sky
The reptile pushes itself out into space
Leaving behind, the human race”

I can’t think of a better use for Sleep’s “Dragonaut”
