Feature James Clayton 5 Apr 2013 - 06:36

The release of Spring Breakers leaves James pondering the loss of childhood innocence in the movies...

I love the smell of corrupted innocence in the morning. It smells like victory, and that's a victory that's shared by all parties. The corrupted ex-innocents are happy (they're finally free to embrace their dark side), the corrupting influences are happy (they've achieved their objective) and the audience is happy.

You may protest, but I put it to you that your pious position is all pretence and that you're in a denial. In spite of enthusiastic public support for 'the good' and for purity, really, everyone is rooting for the dark side to do well.

People are perverse and genuinely prefer it when the nasty, the sinister or the unpalatable powers through and pollutes proceedings. Look deep inside yourself and you'll realise that you do want to trek into darkness, »
