Toro Y Moi aka Chaz Bundick is a band of one.
Harmony Korine’s newest feature will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival
U.S.A/2009, 78 min, color: A film unearthed from the buried landscape of the American nightmare, TRASH HUMPERS follows a small group of elderly Peeping Toms through the shadows and margins of an unfamiliar world. Crudely documented by the participants themselves, we follow the debased and shocking actions of a group of true sociopaths the likes of which have never been seen before. Inhabiting a world of broken dreams and beyond the limits of morality they crash against a torn and frayed America. Bordering on an ode to vandalism,it is a new type of horror; palpable and raw.

This film had a major impact on me when I first saw it at the age of 18. Especially love the look, palette and pacing.
