This quiz is for the ultimate film buff, find out which filmmaker nerd you are and then brag to all of your nerd friends. I don't feel like writing anymore so I'll take an excerpt from a harmony korine bio page. Born in 1974 in Bolinas, CA, Korine is the son of documentary filmmaker Sol Korine. He spent his early years in Nashville, TN, before moving to New York City to live with his grandmother. A solitary teenager, Korine frequented revival theaters, watching classic films by Cassavetes, Herzog, Godard, Fassbinder, and Alan Clarke. He studied English at New York University for one semester before dropping out to pursue a career as a professional skateboarder. Korine was skating with friends in Washington Square Park when he caught the eye of photographer Larry Clark. Korine showed Clark a screenplay he had written about a teenager whose father takes him to a prostitute. Impressed, the photographer asked him to compose a script about his everyday life.
take my damn quiz. more harmony bio. Within three weeks, Korine wrote Kids, a film about 24 hours in the sex- and drug-filled lives of several Manhattan teenagers. Directed by Clark and starring Leo Fitzpatrick and Korine's on-again-off-again girlfriend Chloe Sevigny, critics called Kids both a brilliant wake-up call to America and a blatant work of teen exploitation. Korine caused another stir with his directorial debut, Gummo (1997), the story of two friends growing up in a remote Ohio town that cannot recover from a devastating tornado that hit decades earlier. Numerous critics thought his use of hand-held video, Super 8, and Polaroids was genius. Herzog and Bernardo Bertolucci even wrote Korine fan letters after seeing the film. Others called Gummo boring, absurd, and exploitative. New York Times reviewer Janet Maslin went so far as to label Gummo the worst film of the year, despite the fact that it earned top awards at both the Venice and Rotterdam Film Festivals.
