Kids -1995 – Larry Clark

First time I saw Kids I thought ‘what a fucking pedestrian adolescence I had.’ The two main kids are like disciples of Gordon Gekko, except pussy is their holy grail and not profit. For sure it’s despondent, it’s dirty, and the characters are beyond reach. Maybe it’s just a slice of NYC. JJ

Destricted – 2006 – Various

home_dvd2.jpg Seven directors; seven short films – each illuminating the erotic on screen. At least three of them are film festival fodder, Gasper Noé’s is an overdose and involves a blow up doll, Larry Clark’s is raw and uncomfortable. Balkan Erotic Epic is interesting. In a word; porn – via the art house.
