SCREENPLAY BOOK

Harmony Korine: Collected Screenplays 1, published by Faber and Faber Ltd, has been available since April of this year. The book features the screenplays for Jokes, Gummo and julien donkey-boy. There’s also a sort of biography written by Korine and an introduction to Jokes (both of these are excerpts from an interview with Tod Lippy in 2000). The book features two screenplays for julien donkey-boy: the non-traditional, dialogue-free script featuring only rough descriptions of scenes, which was used for filming, and a traditional version, which appears to be simply the finished film transferred to screenplay form. Despite the ‘1’ in the title, Faber and Faber say there are no plans for a second volume.
