A well-executed scene can be followed by another where Clark shows no sense of the tone of which he'd just been in such tight control.

A routine genre film.

It's hard for Another Day in Paradise to bring anything new to the well-worn road traveled by thugs on the run. But director Larry Clark and an energetic cast keep things jumping in this morality tale about the down and dirty.

As contradictory as it is energetic, the film takes as many risks as its people do and as a result strikes a highly contemporary nerve.

This is not a movie for everyone, and I'm not certain that I even want to recommend it with strong reservations.

Audience Reviews for Another Day in Paradise


What a weird-ass film. But it was better than some movies I've seen.

Leigh Ryan

Really sickening of darker group of a drug addicts and bit explicit sex scenes of young junkie couples that filmmaker Larry Clark made including "Bully". (Really disappointed with DVD didn't work with use English substitles properly because that still has shown at the back cover - that gotta be kidding!)

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

I always want more Larry Clark despite the fact that his films tend to reveal the rather disturbing underbelly of America. This isn't "Kids" but it is a still a great pic.
