Frightening, frank and serious, a wake-up call to the world.

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.

Kids is the kind of movie that needs to be talked about afterward.

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.
