Just as pertinent now as it was upon its 1995 release, Larry Clark’s (Ken Park, Bully, The Smell of Us) indie debut offers a gritty, unapologetic look at Gen-X youth culture in New York City. Reckless teen Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick) has made it his goal to de-flower as many virgins as possible; however his litany of lovers are unaware that he’s HIV positive. While hunting for his latest conquest, Telly and his best friend, Casper (Justin Pierce), skate, smoke pot and steal from shops around the five buroughs. Meanwhile, Jenny (Chloë Sevigny), one of Telly’s early victims, makes it her mission to alert other innocent girls to his nefarious intentions – but before she has a chance to confront him at a party, everything goes horribly wrong. Featuring real youths playing versions of themselves, Kids is as disturbingly today as it was two decades ago. Penned by a nineteen-year-old Harmony Korine (Gummo, Trash Humpers, Spring Breakers), who Clark met while photographing New York skate culture, it’s more than art reflecting life; it’s a movie made on the street by those who’ve been there and lived it.
