Voyeuristic documentation

The voyeuristic documentation of the downfall of western civilisation (whew!)

“I’ve never understood why people despise Harmony Korine so much. His films are definitely unpleasant experiences; but if you accept that and understand his mission statement (to make the viewer complicit in the voyeuristic documentation of the downfall of western civilisation), then I don’t see how anyone could think that his films don’t work.”
