Today is the birthday of eccentric director and artist, Harmony Korine. The man behind delightfully grimy films like "Kids" and "Gummo" is turning 40 years old today, and we can't get over how old we feel now.
Over the years, the Tennessee-raised filmmaker has earned quite the reputation for his cinematic creations and strange public persona. Incorporating cringe-worthy imagery and incomprehensible dialogue, often set to the tunes of an eerie, indie-soundtrack, his films have earned him equal amounts praise and disgust by critics and the general public alike. (We're almost certain he's happy with both reactions.)
To celebrate his 40th birthday, we compiled a slideshow of Korine's 40 best career moments. From film trailers to Letterman interviews to photographs with "it girl" Chloë Sevigny, scroll through the survey of Korine's career below and let us know which memory is your favorite in the comments section.
