Synopsis: Constructing this film through random scenes, director Harmony Korine abruptly jettisoned any sort of narrative plot, so here we go: Solomon and Tummler are two bored teenage boys who live in Xenia, Ohio. A few years ago, a tornado swept through it, destroying more than half the town and killing the same amount, including Solomon's father. The film, from there, chronicles the anti-social adventures these two boys have. These include sniffing glue, killing cats, having sex, riding dirtbikes, listening to black metal, and meeting a cavalcade of quirky, bizarre, and scary people. These include a man who pimps his mentally ill wife to our anti-heroes, three sisters who play with their cat and practice becoming strippers, a black midget fending off the sexual advances of a troubled man (played by the director Harmony Korine), a 12-year-old gay transvestite who is also a cat killer, Solomon's mother who seems to be the only glimpse of sanity, two foul-mouthed six-year olds, and most importan

-Nine nips?

Nine lives, too.

lf she is pregnant, we'll drown

the kittens in the creek.

You see? Do it like this.

Get it over all the pink--

around it.

Do it on it real tight.

That tight,

it will get infected.

Don't tell me.

This is the right way.

lf you just do little pats,

it won't raise it.

The whole point is to make it

fatter and pop it out bigger.

-Tight.

-That's tight.

-This gonna hurt?

-lt's not gonna hurt.

We're gonna do it quick.

-Ready?

-Pull it, Dot, pull it!

One, two, three.

They look bigger.

They look a little bigger.

l think they look wider.

The nipple's fatter.

They look redder, but l think

they look much better.

Better nipple.

Every day

lt's a-gettin' closer

Goin' faster

than a roller coaster

Love like yours will

Surely come my way

A-hey a-hey-hey

Every day

lt's a-getting closer

Goin' faster

than a roller coaster

Love like yours will

Surely come my way

A-hey a-hey-hey

Every day, lt's a-gettin' closer

Goin' faster

than a roller coaster

Love like yours

will surely come my way

Hey-hey hey-hey-hey

Love like yours

Will surely come my way

What do you want to do?

Wanna keep lookin'?

Go by Dean's place...

back by the dumpsters?

Then let's go get our money.

Let's get some milkshakes.

Milkshakes?

Strawberry milkshake.

lf they don't have strawberry,

l'll get pineapple.

Let's go get our money first.

Does your mom

ever make you food?

-She makes me toast.

-ls that it?

She cooks me lamb chops.

You ever eaten crepe suzette?

Spanker had gravy on his vest...

gravy on his tie,

gravy on his pants...

gravy all over him...

so he went to his grave

with gravy on his vest...

gravy on his tie,

gravy on his pants...

gravy all over him.

That dirty old man.

These two kids l know...
