Larry Clark's cinema has, if nothing else, very specifically delineated the line drawn by the American court's decency standards under the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act (generally referred to as "2257").

Because the filmmakers cook up an equal number of touching sequences to match their disturbing ones, their portrait of disturbed America comes through clearly and effectively.

This is a movie that lends a voice to a good chunk of the youth population. It's a voice that just wants to be heard. Is that too much to ask?

Parental figures are one-dimensional. Behavior becomes extreme and absurd, making the film laughable.

A ragingly controversial feature that makes it very tricky to distinguish between insightful and incite-ful.
