“Gummo isn't so much a movie as it is an experiment, and, taken on those terms, it is a fascinating piece of work. Repellent, disgusting and ugly, yes - but still fascinating.”-Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

“To be sure, Gummo has its champions: the director Gus Van Sant has described it as ''an antic fried chicken wing,'' equated Mr. Korine with Tiger Woods, lauded the film's ''sophisticated and refined cinematic dialogue of modern cultural influences'' and expressed his own wish to make a film this good…Let's just say that viewers lured to Gummo by its intensive grunge and would-be creative audacity deserve what they get.”-Janet Maslin, New York Times
