The film seems to want to distance itself a bit from the last wave of mass destruction and annihilation, but not much. It is rare, though laudable in some aspect, the result is poor. It's kind of the same, but different .... but bad. Like its plot.
I would like to stress the use of ellipsis going to be interesting to be tiresome, eventually be embarrassing. The characters are also a complete failure and concern for what may happen throughout…
Despite its TV look and low budget, Trenchard-Smith manages to get out a good portrait of the Vietnam War (well, it seems, since I was not there). This is a war movie, and what it offers. Alternating with relative success, the almost continuous siege on the American base and relationships that occur on both sides, always marked by tension and rawness of that particular environment.
More about documentary and video art of fiction I'm used to, I find totally disturbing and depressing the landscapes Korine is showing us.
Those kind of landscapes always catch my attention,have always seemed to me like old sets, abandoned and where evil lurks. And in Trash Humpers are very marked by the use of the camcorder, which gives an even more creepy.
Well, obviously, having four morons, looking bad and dressing worst, destroying everything and singing, help, but for me the really crappy here is the landscape.
