The thing that's killing me though is the amount of backlash it's getting from mainstream audiences. It's a social commentary on how batshit crazy the party culture is in the United States right now (it really does a great job of capturing just how insane it is) and everyone is just saying it's a borderline porno with no plot. It's a lot to take in and the story is told in non-linear fashion with a lot of voiceovers and other abstract filmmaking techniques I can completely understand someone absolutely hating it (Like I said earlier, there were parts of it I hated.) Everyone is entitled to their opinion, just know what it's trying to accomplish before writing it off as a mindless piece of shit people.
It was quite brilliant really, so many people despised it and were disgusted by it, but that was the point. Korine did a great job commenting on our current society and it was beautiful to look at. Most people don't like watching movies that make them thing though, so whatever.

Yeah, I enjoyed it. It was way more subtle, which some may or may not like. Not as great as Oldboy or Thirst, though.
