Like Larry Clark I am also fascinated by adolescent males- but not in a perverse sexual way!
I just love kids that do shit they love, especially when their circumstance push them into becoming an outsider, which in turn gives them that effortless cool attitude. That fearless 'don't give a fuck' attitude that only comes from being deprivation or real struggle. Real Talk. I fell in LOVE with this teenage Mexican skate cru in Wassup Rockers 'cos that is what they were, but not as individuals but as a unit. They reminded me of kids I knew, but just looked different. WE DON'T HAVE MEXICAN KIDS IN LONDON! And that's the thing I probably loved most, they way they looked, skated and dressed... it's different here!

Soo seeing as I don't have a date for Valentines day if someone could send these kids to London to hang out that would be cool!

there are too many of these kids in LA to be outsiders, personally i thought it was his worst film.

this movie was not very good imo

nothing like KIDS, the movie seemed really slow and empty even though there was a lot going on

somehow the kids were stuck in between being real on camera and's almost like they couldn't decide which way to go

cool concept though
