Published by the ever-brilliant Nieves (Zurich), the original filmscript for Mister Lonely, Harmony Korine's third feature film 10 years after the debut of the widely acclaimed Gummo (1997), and the following release of Julien Donkey-Boy (1999), has been released with 22 photographs by Rachel Korine and Brent Stewart.
America’s prodigy film director, producer, screenwriter and author, Korine, writes about the process of making the film: “I was not sure I would make a film ever again. I spent many years dreaming of pigs that could walk up walls. I was living completely debased, like a tramp and a criminal. I had turned into a bastard with no home or friends. One day I started to dream of nuns. I began to imagine nuns dancing in the sky and riding bicycles in the clouds. I knew the nuns were testing their faith. On one occasion three of my teeth fell into a sandwich that I was eating. It felt like the right time to care again. I asked my brother to help me. He introduced me to a famous boxer who was good with medicine, he put my teeth back in my mouth. The nuns were testing me as well, this much I was sure of. I made this film out of the ashes of the broken nation, and it was there that I discovered that a little faith can go a long, long way.”
