There really are some kids who think like this, and these are the kids who should see this film

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.

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

Clark's direction -- luminous, real, charged, hallucinatory -- is excellent, but Korine's script is so busy being amused by it's own excesses that it doesn't really tell us anything about the characters involved.

None of the advance hype on Kids can prepare you for the raw, stripped-down reality that Larry Clark captures in his astonishing first film.
