"Kids" is a hard movie to put my finger on. It left me with mixed feelings, emotions, and a slew of questions: (Is this exploitation? Is this art? Is it really as provocative as its reputation suggests?). Regardless, Larry Clark's raw and compelling images bring this one of kind coming-of-age tale of unsupervised youth to graphic life.

A film that presents a complete sense of realism. I felt empathy, anger and pity for these characters. This is eye opening, thought provoking material that must be seen.

Some people may think this film was grossly over-exaggerated, but having grown up in the "slums" myself, this is a very realistic portrayal of the teenagers who like to party. I've seen them interact this way, a lot of them talk that way, and although I have no knowledge of anyone with HIV, other STDS have come about for the area. :/. I thought the sex scenes were graphic for being underaged teens and kind of gross, but very well done for showing the lifestyle that some teenagers really do live.

Although I wasn't spreading AIDS at this age, I was drinking, screwing, and drugging to the equivalency or beyond the actions in this movie. I love shock cinema, and this one did it for me. Written by Harmony Korin, the under-genius of Bully, Gummo and Julien Donkey Boy, it delves into the depravity of teenagers without supervision. I had a friend who refused to have sex due to what happens in this movie. For a film to do this, there must be something powerful in it or he's just a dumbass. The sex scenes border on pedophilia but I was more disgusted by the wiener on screen in El Topo. Some people claim this isn't a true portrayal of Urban living at this age. It definitely is for some. If you haven't seen it, give it a shot. Don't let a critic or reviewer curb you interest in movies …
