Hey 'Spring Breakers' Can You Handle This? Watch Harmony Korine's 2009 Short 'Crutchnap'

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist March 20, 2013 at 6:41PM

Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” took a tidy sum in limited release last weekend, and add that to a $3million+ opening in France and Korine’s film is already off to great start, and will easily be his most successful film ever. So cast your mind back now to a pre-commercially successful Korine so you’re in the right headspace to watch one of his shorts, “Crutchnap.”

Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” took a tidy sum in limited release last weekend, and add that to a $3 million+ opening in France and Korine’s film is already off to great start, and will easily be his most successful film ever. Cast your mind back now to a pre-commercially successful Korine so you’re in the right headspace to watch one of his shorts, “Crutchnap.”

Just 42-seconds long and made back in 2009, the same year that saw the release of “Trash Humpers,” it was part of a project entitled "OneDreamRush." Created by a New Zealand vodka company 42Below, they enlisted directors Mike Figgis, David Lynch, Gaspar Noe, Leos Carax, Carlos Reygadas, Abel Ferrara, Larry Clark, Kenneth Anger, and more to create super brief shorts, all running 42 seconds.

The video’s certainly very surreal, if nothing like any dream we’ve ever had (thank goodness), and sees our cameraman, presumably Korine, running towards the sound of a crying baby. What he finds when he gets there is surprising to say the least. We’d certainly like to see what the director’s new fans, who find him through "Spring Breakers," will think of this kind of material. Hopefully they’ll be inspired to explore his back catalogue, and this is an easy 42-second bite-size piece to kick things off with. [The Seventh Art]
