Pedophilia, pedophilia, pedophilia.

The first-time director, Larry Clark, is rather like his protagonist: He comes on to you, has his rough way with you, and leaves you feeling empty and violated.

Film Threat

One of Larry Clark's infamous "Kids are Evil Monsters" movies, Clark tells very little, and shows too much with an art illusion.

| Original Score: 1/5

In its candid and bold approach, Larry Clarke's controversial film dwarfs all of Hollywood's youth movies, crossing new boundaries in its portrayal of sex and drugs; for a change, real teenagers, not actors in their 20s, play the roles.

Overrated reality slop.

The film isn't all that entertaining, but it does provide a sort of creepy, voyeuristic nostalgia

| Original Score: 3/5

Appalling, immoral rubbish palmed off as art.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

There's an unsettling subtext here; despite the presence of a broad (not to mention tired, simplistic, and overworked) "message," it feels like exploitation.

| Original Score: 1/5

Trashy and exploitational. Clark comes off like a skuzzy pornographer taking advantage of his cast while using a faux vérité excuse as his accomplice.

| Original Score: 1/5

A shocking, raw landmark from a talented, if sometimes misguided director.

Powerful but exploitative raunch that preys on teens.

Utterly repugnant, child pornography masquerading as serious filmmaking.
