Let's spend this "last" day of summer discussing the more important things in life, namely Act Da Fool, a film by Harmony Korine for Proenza Schouler's FW2010 line.
It was made in Nashville, where HK lives, and features a buncha bad ass girls drinking 40s, writing COKE on dumpsters, giving the finger...being generally rowdy. Wearing all PS (styled by Mel Ottenberg! WIN), filmed with the hazy blurred lens of a video camera that has got to be from the late 80s, with a voice over about sorta random stuff..I mean it's a THING, for sure.
I did not love it upon first viewing.
But, as I reviewed my screencaps, what really resonated with me was how HOT the clothes looked on girls with a real SITUATION happening in the chest and ass area- they all look AWESOME in these clothes. I really think so.
I think I wish this was a fashion editorial or photography show or book- The stills made more sense to me, or at least that was what I enjoyed the most? When I look at them as pure images, it seems like a really visually interesting juxtaposition of people and place for a Proenza collection.
I love all parties involved, but as a film, it didn't make me swoon. As photographic stills, I really dig it.
But judging by Twitter, I seem to be alone on this!
What do you think about it? Tell me, tell me, tell me!!
