Harmony Korine on Provoking a Reaction (2013)

“Look, it’s all good. I’m not telling anyone what to think. I’m not trying to even defend it in that way, or say that this was my intent or that was my intent, or that this is what I was trying to say. That’s not for me to argue. I’m trying to make something that’s amazing, something that’s beautiful, something that lasts. Since I was a kid, I stayed to myself, and I was always just paying attention to the light at the end of the tunnel. There can be all those types of interpretations, it’s all part of it. I enjoy it. There is purposefully a large margin that’s left undefined. If it was something I could just articulate or explain or say this or that, I probably wouldn’t do it anyway. But I also wouldn’t make the film like the film is.”
