Gummo (1997): review- 10/10

Entrancing film portraying mainly adolescent inhabitants of Xenia, Ohio, a town that had some few years before been hit by a tornado.

The film catalogues the curious degenerate tendencies of these characters- this alone would make the film fascinating.

However, in addition, the film is styled with great flair, even beauty, so that however grim the behaviour on display, the film almost serves as a celebration of the town.
