I´ve just watched it. Great thing that it was made readily available online in such a speedy manner.

As fo the film: It´s quite good. Really good in instances, not so good in some ways though.
Some scenes were great, other scenes were rather flawed (in a bad way).
Overall I really appreciate it, but I´m not completely blown away.
7,2/10

Korine couldn’t introduce the film last night, but he did send in a video message where the director—wearing running shoes on his hands, sunglasses and a Tupac Shakur sweater—apologized for not being able to appear in person, speaking in a stunted, seemingly stoned cadence. “I got stuck in this other place filming something that was really ridiculous, but I had to do it,” Korine said slowly. “We made this movie across 15 continents and over a couple of years and a few million dollars and in the end it was all worth it. I won’t give away too much other than to say I’m really excited you’re there, I wish I was there, I hope you enjoy this and I’ll talk to you very, very soon.”

I saw a still from his intro somewhere but I forget where it is. There must be footage of it around, can you find it, Humpers?

another report.

For Tuesday night's world premiere in Austin, Texas, of his new 16-minute short film starring the South African rap group Die Antwoord, called "Umshini Wam," he sent along a video.

In a dimly lit room, Korine was seen with short hair and dark sunglasses, with fancy basketball sneakers over his hands. He noted first that the title translates to mean "Bring Me My Machine Gun." (A little Googling reveals that the phrase is based on an African rallying song.) Then things took a turn to what might be called the Harmonious.

"And so what happened was I got stuck in this other place filming something; that's really ridiculous," Korine said to explain his absence in a comicaly slurred and halting voice. "But I had to do it. Anyway, I hope you like this. We made this movie across 15 continents, it took a couple of years and a few million dollars, but in the end it was all worth it."

Is anybody else having trouble with that link? Is it available elsewhere?

EDIT: Scrap that, it can be viewed perfectly well using Google Chrome. I enjoyed it, though not as much as Act Da Fool, but it still had some nice moments.I agree that some scenes felt perhaps a little redundant, and I would say that the cinematography was its strongest point.

This is the user that uploaded the Video to Vimeo, and it seems he also uploaded the Intro to the film already 2 months ago. Maybe he is the FX guy that made it?

Whatever.. I have to say this is my favourite Korine Film since Julien Donkey Boy! It really has something special, and after viewing it for a third time, it really hit me. It seems a bit odd and silly at first, but somehow it isnt really. What i really love about it is, how the film loves this strange personalitys and shows us great, funny and moving moments. That is what i always loved about Korine.
