Is it telling, do you think, that Korine is married to a woman 13 years his junior? Having not seen both of his films that she starred in, I can't speak to her role as a muse, but I will assume that she is. It's interesting to note that he and another one of his muses, Chloe Sevigny, were also romantically involved for several years. Will he keep trading for younger models as he ages?
I agree thoroughly with Brandon that regardless of what you think of his films, Korine brings something unique and somewhat unsettling to the film world, and it and we are all better off for it.
