Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers was one of the rarest albeit also interesting films of 2013.

Seeing as it is directed by man known for his blackly comic and absurdist aesthetic (Harmony Korine), and it features James Franco as a corn-rowed drug and arms dealer who seduces a couple of Disney actresses into a life of crime during Spring Break, the trailer for Spring Breakers is pretty much what you’d expect:  insanity.  Trashy, absolute insanity.  But does...
