“On the Edge of Paradise”



Directed by HARMONY KORINE/1999/94mins.

With Chloë Sevigny, Ewen Bremner, Brian Fisk, , Werner Herzog

A portrait of the effects of schizophrenia on family life, Julien Donkey-Boy is a fascinating journey into the mind of an adolescent schizophrenic.  Scenes of actual poetry and beauty (highlighted by director Harmony Korine's inventive use of editing and sound) intersect with those of painfully desperate realism in order to paint an intense portrait of one man's paranoid schizophrenia. 

WINNER: Buenos Aires Int. Film Festival Cinematography Award, Best Actor

Gijón International Film Festival Best Art Direction

“Note: In a "confession" published on the movie's website, Korine admits that although "Dogma" requires all props to be found on location, he imported a can of cranberries from a supermarket. And he apologizes that Chloe Sevigny, his real-life girlfriend, was not really pregnant in the movie ("I did try, though") but only had a pillow stuffed under her clothes. He proudly adds that the pillow was found on the location, in his grandmother's bedroom closet.”-Roger Ebert
