Movie Info

In the 1970s, teen Bobbie (Vincent Kartheiser) supports his drug habit and his girlfriend, Rosie (Natasha Gregson Wagner), with petty crime. When one such job gets ugly, Bobbie looks to seasoned local crook Mel (James Woods) for guidance. Mel, a junkie himself, takes a shine to him, and Bobbie, Rosie, Mel and his lover, Sid (Melanie Griffith), begin pulling heists together. But, thanks to a bit of success and an abundance of narcotics, they get into debt -- and mixed up in murder.

Audience Reviews for Another Day in Paradise

  • Jun 21, 2008
    Larry Clark's second film is more conventional than his controversial debut (Kids), but it's still intensely watchable and well-made. When walking us through the typical crime-drama routine, this film is interesting, but it is the character dynamics and the dark revelatory moments that stick. Aesthetically it's a sleek picture, infused with Clark's trademark documentary-style photography. The script has minor issues, especially with its ending, but the performances are what stand out and make it so exceedingly powerful. James Woods got all the praise from critics, but it also features top-notch acting from Vincent Kartheiser, Natasha Gregson Wagner and Melanie Griffith. It's a film that consumes its audience throughout the duration of its runtime, and leaves a lasting impression despite its shortcomings. Very well-directed by Larry Clark.

    The one Larry Clark movie that it's a stretch to call it kiddie porn. Though it's nothing special at all, a generic story of a bunch of small time criminals with the leaders being mother and father figures to the younger members, it's still very watchable and at moments, shocking. I was having a very bad year at TIFF when I saw this one, so I probably give it more praise than it deserves, but at least it wasn't boring.

    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.
