What happened when Harmony Korine cast Disney starlet Selena Gomez alongside Gucci Mane and 1,000 horny extras? 'It's a hyper-candy-textural, hyper-stylised reality,' he says

"Note: this movie is not for my littles," wrote Selena Gomez on her Facebook page recently. Gomez, 20, Disney starlet, singer of songs, breaker of Bieber's heart, is followed by 41 million people on Facebook, the vast majority of whom you'd hope are indeed "littles". She's heavily promoting Spring Breakers on her page, among the fashion line plugs ("My favorites the yellow with the hearts what's yours?") and Disney show ads. But she's right. It's not for them. Spring Breakers is a glorious beast of a film, a morally ambiguous piece of pop art, a lurid trip with hallucinatory highs and ugly comedowns. Substances are abused, humans are murdered. Guns are fellated. In Gomez World, it is very much off-message. Cover your eyes, littles.
