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...

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.

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.

Boy, that kid Telly sure is fun and representative of the Youth of Today. Not.

Trashy and exploitational. Clark comes off like a skuzzy pornographer taking advantage of his cast while using a faux vrit excuse as his accomplice.

Powerful but exploitative raunch that preys on teens.
January 14, 2003
Utterly repugnant, child pornography masquerading as serious filmmaking.
