Marie Southard Ospina

My fear is only that we are putting out images that strive to hide anything anyone anywhere may think of as flawed. We are transforming the selfie from something strong and good and fun into just another outlet for the perseverance of perfection. Not to mention, we are destroying another art form: the candid photo.

Visually, Spring Breakers is entrancing; a gorgeous mix of day-glo, slow-mo and impressive camera work from cinematographer Beniot Debie that really sets this film apart from anything you'll likely to watch this year.
