Looking at the work of Harmony Korine, I often get the feeling that he is trying too hard. Yet, his latest video “Curb Dance” (2011) is strangely sweet and accessible, particularly if you ever had an adorable eccentric in your life.

Dedicated to legendary filmmaker Jonas Mekas, Korine’s video feels like opening a trunk in a strange attic to discover an unfinished short story and a dusty music box.
