Riff Raff at Club Red

1 of 50
I'm unable to decouple Riff Raff, the rapper, from the character of "Alien," as played by James Franco in Harmony Korine's 2012 film Spring Breakers. This is not an uncommon thing, as even Riff Raff himself is insistent that the character is not just inspired by him, but is him, to the point of using first-person pronouns when talking about the character in the movie and making apparently unsubstantiated threats in the past about planning to sue some party or another involved with the film for millions of dollars for unattributed use of his likeness.
