With its quasi-documentary aesthetic and a script by 19-year-old Harmony Korine, Kids claims authenticity as it depicts a normal day in the life of a group of New York teens. The press were dutifully appalled by its grimy, exploitative feel, and panicked by its provocative content. Clark’s most unsettling directorial decision is a refusal to pass moral judgement on the teenagers’ reckless, pleasure-seeking behaviour – giving a feeling of uneasy precariousness as a new generation looms in the wings.
Classic &Cult Film London is a group devoted to the classics, the so bad they're good and the plain odd. We'll be going to see films old and new and enjoying some of the some classic cinematic moments. I’m open to suggestions so if there is a film you’re dying to see let me know and I’ll try and put something together!
