"Kids" - Larry Clark

So, despite the terrible, crappy fall/winter weather monsoon occurring outside, I made it to my long lost psychology class. Lucky for me, today my professor showed us a movie. We discussed Larry Clark's film "Kids" about a bunch of sex-crazed kids discovering the wonders and consequences of unsafe sex. Sounds like a bunch of bad ass kids right? Well in class we discussed the psyche of Clark himself as he decided to use kids with no acting experience to portray these roles. Clark claims that he was documenting these kids but we questioned it because he had the power of what he wanted to film. To film these soft-porn actions of these kids is kinda strange on his part. But anywho, I've heard a lot about this movie from friends with good movie sense and they told me it was weird and I just had to see it for myself. Very harsh film. Watch if you get the oppurtunity.
