I was able to watch this movie last night at a friend's house. Each of these kids has an individual storyline to follow. This movie doesn't push the envelope, it douses it in gasoline, lights it up, flings it out the window, then empties an arsenal's worth of bullets into it and mixes the ashes in with a diseased pitbull's food. The one problem I had with this movie is that I think Larry Clark did go a bit overboard. I don't get my kicks off of watching stuff like this and I don't particular enjoy it. Thanks to this movie, I now have the image of some kid masturbating while choking himself with a robe sash tied to a doorknob.
To make a long story short, you see things in this movie that you would never think they'd have the audacity to show. I commend Larry Clark for being brave enough to use the film medium to display what a lot of people refuse to accept. It's people like him who show us that things aren't all rosy underneath, sort of like a rough and rugged Michael Moore. Do we need to see the main female in this movie lick another character's penis? I'd hate to think that I still live in a world where an artist's rights to freedom of expression gets thrown by the wayside by a bunch of people who presume to think that they know what's good for us, the viewing public. I'll leave you to see the details of that one for yourself but I'll say that it contains footage that left me with my eyes wide open in disbelief. A lot of people perceive him to be nothing more than a dirty old man who enjoys seeing young kids do things they shouldn't be and then filming it. This movie doesn't push the envelope, it douses it in gasoline, lights it up, flings it out the window, then empties an arsenal's worth of bullets into it and mixes the ashes in with a diseased pitbull's food. I think he manages to show convincingly that depravity lurks beneath what we consider to be the simplest, wholesome things. None of them are pretty. Is all of this absolutely necessary? The story itself revolves around a skateboarder named Ken Park who commits suicide at the end of the opening credits. In the near twenty-nine years that I've been around, I've seen a lot in film. There's no actual penetration per se but you do get to see various sexual acts in detail, some of them carried out fully. The sex in this film is pretty graphic. He directs with a sure hand and he gets convincing performances from his actors. I've seen all of Larry Clark's films, with the exception of Teenage Caveman. Finally, while we may not all agree on what constitutes art, all art deserves to be seen, no matter the content. This scene alone is cause to question whether or not this movie should be labeled as pornography. I really hope that he's not filming these scenes to satisfy some sick vices. You get to see these kids I say kids because that's what they are; not one of them looks a day over twenty-one and the majority of them look frighteningly underage doing pretty much everything you wouldn't want to think your own kids are doing, which I guess is the whole point to this. I'm sorry to say it but I really believe that he did. There's a shot in Bully, where Bijou Phillips climbs into a car and you get this long, lingering view of her crotch, which truth be told, was completely unnecessary. They're all pretty shocking in their own way. This film on the other hand, is like a solid punch to the gut.
