| Original Score: C+
Frightening, frank and serious, a wake-up call to the world.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
| Original Score: 4/4
Kids is the kind of movie that needs to be talked about afterward.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Kids shows what transpires when children are set adrift in a heartless world, and warns us what happens -- and is already happening -- in the absence of love and guidance.
Kids, a disturbingly voyeuristic look at adolescent promiscuity, is virtually child pornography disguised as a cautionary documentary.
Ostensibly about the banality of youthful evil, Kids is simply about its own banality.
