Wassup Rockers

Critics Consensus

As usual with Clark's films, the fixation on kids is rather creepy, plus the plot eventually runs off the rails into camp.

Audience Reviews for Wassup Rockers

  • Jun 12, 2011
    Pretty decent film from Larry Clark. Not as exploitative as many of his other films, this still deals with the same themes of youth and loss of innocence and centers around a group of young skate kids. The film still has a lot of awkward and uncomfrtable sex scenes, here they are a lot less graphic than in movies like Kids, Bully or (especially) Ken Park. Infact this time around all close ups at teenage genetalia are above the pants which is quite a relief in a lot of ways, even if the film doesn't exactly pack the same punch as his earlier work. Also it is clear here that this is Larry Clarks show. Harmony Korine didn't write this like he did Kids and Ken Park and that odd almost gritty surrealism of Kids (expecially) isn't presnt here anymore. Instead this goes for more of a verite, documentary type style. Also features a pretty decent skate punk soundtrack. Not as good as I had hoped, but not bad at all. That being said Clarks films still aren't going to be for everyone, so use your better judgement. If you've seen any of his other films and didn't like them you probably won't like this one either.

    Creative, well-produced flick. Some of the kids really can't act, and some of their adventures are unrealistically excessive, but entertaining story nonetheless.

    As a Larry Clark fan can't help feeling he has become one trick pony, The cinema verite style is great but he seems to have lost the desire for captivating narrative. Maybe he needs to work with Harmony Korine again to re-capture his earlier magic
