David Letterman said it best when he called Harmony Korine "pleasantly odd" in an interview over a decade ago. You may have seen Harmony's first two strange films, GUMMO and JULIEN DONKEY-BOY. In 2007, Harmony seemed to mature as a filmmaker with the offbeat and sincere MISTER LONELY.

It looks like he's back to his extremely bizarre roots with his new film, TRASH HUMPERS. Incase you missed my TIFF '09 Spotlight, TRASH HUMPERS is a musical of some sort and the official synopsis includes the following: "creepy masks, low-grade torture, frequent public urination, senseless vandalism and the title, acted out on defenseless garbage cans, [that] all have a confrontational panache about them to be sure.”

We now have a trailer, which tells you absolutely nothing about this film except that it's going to be really fucking weird. From what I gathered from the synopsis, photos, and trailer, it's a small group of people in Freddy Krueger/Six Flags commercial dude/Johnny Knoxville Old Man skit masks doing a bunch of random acts of weird shit.

If you're at the TIFF, you can catc it this Saturday at the Scotiabank Theatre 2.
