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.
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.
