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 few instances of parents observed are the type that have no control over their own sad lives (Telly's pathetic chain smoking breast feeding single parent mom) and as such were in no postion to give their kids any worthwhile or even interesting goals for their own lives.
This movie is pretty much like Saturday Night Fever, only younger kids and minus any Tony with his undefined dreams of dancing to give it any charm.
The kids are all stupid and unoriginal hedonists who are probably parodying the missing adults in their lives, dringing, smoking and trying to get laid in awkward and stupid ways.
The girls in the movie all completely lack any self esteem and apparently any street savvy whatsoever, weird for NYC, as they all will apparently believe any line any loser teenage boy with nothing going for him will throw at them. The girls in this movie are all victims - of their own deficiencies and of the stupid hormone driven boys who prey upon them.
When I was in middle school and high school I hung out with a weird mix of geeks and druggies, both groups from the middle class through the poor (the poor ones all had to work to help support their family). Sometimes we would encounter kids like the ones in this movie (stupid, mostly lower middle class, pedestrian and limited mentally) and I can remember wondering sometime what their sad seeming lives must be like. This movie showed me and its pretty much as bleak and a waste of time as I imagined.
This movie is worth seeing but to interpret this movie as a statemnt about what all kids are like is insulting to the half-way intelligent and/or ambitious and/or talented kids in the world.
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.
