The Beach Bum + Dean Spanley

Director: Harmony Korine Run Time: 195 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2019

Starring: Isla Fisher, Jimmy Buffett, Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Zac Efron

Selected by Will Oldham a.k.a. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy: “These two motion pictures exemplify things I love about cinema specifically and humankind more broadly.  I’ve repeat-watched these more than any other films over the past 5 years or so.  They each uniquely balance reverence and irreverence in ways that I strive for in my own working.”


THE BEACH BUM: Matt Mcconaughey, Isla Fisher and Snoop Dogg hang out in the neon Florida Keys smoking, drinking, writing poetry on the beach.


DEAN SPANLEY: Peter O’Toole is a difficult (as the euphemisim goes) elderly father, who has a son struggling to get along with him. A new clergyman enters their lives, spinning tales of his past life as a dog. Brother, I’ve been there.
