His movies are ones where I always like them much better a day or two after I see them. Not like a bad thing, just more a delayed reaction. I think because of the disorientation maybe. I think it took me at least a week before I liked Mr. Lonely, but then I really liked it.

Oh no.

I wouldn't have necessarily recommended Trash Humpers to someone who was having a hard time with Beach Bum, but I respect your decision to take the make it make it make it don't fake it road to Harmony Korine's catalog.
