One of the Most Powerful and True Films
12 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Larry Clark has created a true masterpiece of its time. Kids is an insightful, poignant and harrowing depiction of the life of angst ridden teens in New York City. There's Tully, the smooth talking, de-flowering (and HIV positive) teen, Casper, the cool, hyped up and not all there teen, and Jennie, the girl who is full of depression and anger for the de-flower man. The film doesn't have much of a direct screenplay (mostly dialogue you would hear while around friends) which is good for the type of movie being made here. The film gains much controversy by stating whether its true to life, or just a mindless depiction of what could happen in the city. You could decide that for yourself, but for me, I think this film has more truth, heart and drama (including great dramatic acting and scenes) that most films I've ever seen.
