The impact this movie had is massive. The movie KIDS still best describes what is like growing up in a city and navigating drugs, STDS, regrets and first-times. Script books can be dull, but not this one. Chloë, Harmony, Leo and Rosario all made their debuts through this film. Larry Clark - director and photographer - is that guy who still remembers that uncomfortable stage of being a teenager and captures the foul language, bad breath, skin and sweaty hair mixing it with the natural beauty that comes from being a fit teenager. A great distraction is reading back over the script, its like entering Harmony’s mind as a 15 years old.
