Gummo, the controversial debut feature from Harmony Korine (Julien Donkey-Boy, screenwriter of Kids) is a series of disjointed, unsettling vignettes exploring the lives of the poverty stricken residents of a squalid, tornado ravaged Ohio town. Teen boys Solomon (Jacob Reynolds) and Tummler (Nick Sutton) are collecting stray cats to finance a huffing habit. The other residents wander the deserted landscape trying to fulfill their boring, nihilistic lives.
