Film: Julien Donkey-Boy

Julien Donkey-Boy is a 1999 Avant-Garde Film by Harmony Korine. It tells the story of the titular Julien (Ewen Bremner), a Paranoid Schizophrenic man living in New York with his pregnant sister, Pearl (Chloe Sevigny, Korine's girlfriend at the time), his aspiring Wrestler brother, Chris (Evan Neumann), and their Robitussin-swigging, gasmask-wearing, Bluegrass-listening-to Father (German Director Werner Herzog). Also grandma (Korine's grandmother, Joyce). 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 Professional Cigarette-Eater (Tom Mullica). Lacking a traditional narrative, Julien Donkey-Boy presents a series of vignettes following these bizarre characters in their daily lives.
