Linda and Al Lerner review “The Beach Bum” on Movies and Shakers

Fearless Matthew McConaughey plays a drunk-stoner-poet almost too well in this disjointed, ultimately disappointing comedy.  We saw this film followed by what could have been an informative Q & A with Writer/Director Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers). The director was entertaining, but hardly informative listening to questions but not answering any of them. The film provides some good laughs and so did he. Korine is a fearless personality who also beats to his own drum, like McConaughey.
