Moondog used to be a successful poet, but these days he’s too busy smoking weed and hitting the bottle to do anything remotely resembling creativity. Since his wife (whom he cheats on with casual pick-ups) is stinking rich, there really is no great urgency. Until the day his luck changes and he finds himself without a dime to his name. Time to finish that novel he’s been working on for ages, perhaps? Perhaps! While he takes his time pondering this existential question, he goofs around with a series of colorful characters: a religiously inspired pyromaniac, a dolphin-obsessed sea captain, a suave marijuana connoisseur, a scruffy beach singer, and a coke-addicted parrot.

No need to introduce master provocateur Harmony Korine, the man behind TRASH HUMPERS, JULIEN DONKEY-BOY, and GUMMO. After his collaboration with James Franco in SPRING BREAKERS, he succeeded in getting another big-name actor. Matthew McConaughey (INTERSTELLAR, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, KILLER JOE) is clearly having a great time as the perennially intoxicated protagonist. Impossible to pigeon-hole this movie: it’s one half drugs comedy, one half satire, and one half still something else. Because in THE BEACH BUM, one and one make three!
