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.

Overall, there isn't much left to say about the film itself that hasn't already been said, other than that it has lost none of its power.
KIDS came out at a time when the HIV virus was much more common among kids than it is today. Nearly all the kids in the film have intercourse (or graphically describe their own experiences) and Jenny tests positive for the virus and the common sense is that she is not the only one among this group of kids who has it. Also, the kids do drugs...lots of drugs. Yet again, completely shocked by the rawness and reality of the picture. Among all this, there is a quite graphic beating on one man by a whole group of these young delinquents. Shortly following the beating, there is a huge party. This party scene really grasps the viewer's attention mainly towards the end.
Overall, KIDS is a must-see for all. The quality of the picture is rather low. It looks almost like it was shot with a handheld camera. Aside from that, it truely stands out as a brutally honest story. The party scene around the end is every parent's worst nightmare come true. Come to think of it, the kids themselves are every parent's nightmare come true.
