''Julien Donkey-Boy'' is a 1999 [[LeFilmArtistique Avant-Garde Film]] by Creator/HarmonyKorine. It tells the story of the titular Julien (Ewen Bremner), a Paranoid Schizophrenic man living in New York with his pregnant sister, Pearl (ChloeSevigny, Korine's girlfriend at the time), his aspiring Wrestler brother, Chris (Evan Neumann), and their [[CloudCuckooLander Robitussin-swigging, gasmask-wearing, Bluegrass-listening-to Father]] (German Director Creator/WernerHerzog). [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Also grandma]] (Korine's grandmother, Joyce). [[GrotesqueGallery Supporting characters]] include a no-armed, relentlessly positive Drummer (Alvin Law), a Black Albino straight from Alabama (Victor Varnado), an innocent, near-blind girl (Chrissy Kobylak) and a [[{{Signature Scene}} Professional]] [[{{Squick}} Cigarette-Eater]] (Tom Mullica). Lacking a traditional narrative, ''Julien Donkey-Boy'' presents a series of vignettes following these bizarre characters in their daily lives.
