In the end, Kids is bound to enrage some viewers, enthrall others and confound most (even among those very teens who aren't allowed in because of the film's non-rated release to avoid the dreaded NC-17).

Kids is stunningly anti-erotic, though not untainted by sensationalism. By condensing all this inflammatory material into a 24-hour time frame, Clark and Harmony Korine create an overwrought narrative that's sometimes tedious in its relentlesshess.

Exploitative, gross, and despicable...

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

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.

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

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.

Could easily pass for a kiddie porn film.

Overrated reality slop.

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

insightful but indulgent

Appalling, immoral rubbish palmed off as art.

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