The Director's Cut DVD includes a second sex scene between Natasha Gregson and Vincent Kartheiser at the motel. According to audio commentary by Larry Clark, the scene had to be cut in order to avoid an NC-17 rating. See more »

I think that this film is one of his best. James Woods eats up the screen. I recently brought the director's cut version on dvd and found it very interesting to listen to the director's commentary. Many of the scenes involving all four actors were improvised and on the spot. James Woods and Larry Calrk rarely agreed on anything and a few scenes are included which were banned in the cinema version.
This and bully are my favourite Larry Clark films. This has a raw feeling to it and the acting is very credible. Melanie Griffith deserves a mention as well, as I not usually enjoy watching her in films, but I think this part was made for her.
A very under-rated film to say the least.
