Powerful and passionate, colorful and compelling, Larry Clark's KIDS is 24 frenetic hours in the life of a group of contemporary teenagers who, like all teenagers, believe they are invincible. With breathtaking images from one of the world's most renowned photographers, KIDS is a deeply affecting, no-holds-barred landscape of words and images, depicting with raw honesty the experiences, attitudes and uncertainties of innocence lost. KIDS gets under the skin and lingers, long after it is viewed. The kids at the core of the story are just that: teenagers living the urban melee of modern-day America. But while these kids dwell in the big city, their story could, quite possibly, happen anywhere.

The film takes on an almost a fly on the wall documentary style as we listen in to their group discussions and follow their actions as the day wears on. The film may think itself brave in talking about manytaboo subjects, but it does so with a typical middle class view and a lack of understanding, thus its difficult to feel any attachment to the characters [lose a*]. The film presents its moral tale in a remote manner and certain scenes seem thrown in at random jazzing it up with a bit of robbery, violence and unauthorised swimming. Sure its shocking, but what do you expect where almost every sentence contains a swear word, the talk is on anal sex, where the main guy just wants to have sex with young teen virgins and the girls want to know if their friends swallow or not.
As a tale on the dangers of Aids this undoubtedly works, but realistic it isnt as it lacks any form of character development and leaves us too detached. Theres some good thumping music in there but its mainly little snippits and the film over-reaches by trying to show too much in too short a time [lose another *]. Worthy of a watch but films around the same period such as Romper Stomper [1992, more action based] and Welcome to the Dollhouse [1995, slower but more intense] cover similar topics better. Pick it up cheap and its worth getting as there are no extras with this.
