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

these two brothers...

they murdered their parents.

They both claim to be raised

as Jehovah Witnesses.

They came to school

in really nice shorts...

and polished tennis sneakers...

and their shirts were always

collared with buttons...

and their hair

was always slicked back...

their teeth

were always brushed...

and their shirts and pants

were always ironed...

and their shoes

never were scuffed up...

or anything like that.

They seemed to have

a wonderful life.

l don't know what went wrong.

Why don't you give me

them shoes?

'Cause they're new,

and l don't give you new shoes.

Yeah, f*ck that, man.

l'm keeping this shit

right here.




-F*ck him up.

-Aw, get off me, man.

-What's up?

-Stop that.

Ooh! Damn!

the first time...

and, um...

l remember one time he came home

from work real late...

and l had been sleeping

on the couch...

and he came in,

and he woke me up...

and he laid on top of me...

and he told me, he said,

''Take off your panties.''

And l asked him why.

He said

that he was only playing...

and that

he wasn't gonna hurt me...

and, um, he was gonna

make me feel good.

And l took off my panties,

and then, um...

he got on top of me...

and he was rubbin' and touchin'

and feelin' and laughin'.

And then--and then, um...

he'd wake up in the morning,

and he'd come in my bedroom...

or bring me into his bedroom...

and he would kiss me

and touch me and...

and make me play with him and...
