I thought the same exact thing about Kids for a while

I was just being dumb though.  I still don't like the movie but I don't think it's trash anymore

but that sort of is the point

it's supposed to be shocking like that, perhaps sickening (disturbing, anyone?  anyone?)

..well i see that ..but look at clockwork or requiem they are both .shocking  and it pays of in the end for these films...but w/kids its just like the director(clark..right?)..just thinks or something  shocking or wild..and films it w/out it serving a point...it does nothing to further the art of making a controversial film..and gives directors that are risque..a bad name IMO

i dont dislike john waters (not WALTERS), it's just that his movies general IDEAS tend to be funnier or better than the actual movie itself.  the exceptions being: cry-baby, hairspray, serial mom, and possibly cecil b. demented (maybe).......

Disturbing? Um.. The Cell could've been perceived as that.. Straw Dogs... Santa Sangre... okay, basically any Jodorowsky film.. Glitter.. Cube.. etc.
As for controversial... Irreversible is definitely the most talked about controversial film of recent memory that I know of.. and, naturally, I could see why... but nevertheless - it was a form of art.
I remember American Psycho as being hailed as controversial... Oh, and Howard the Duck was seen as controversial. For sucking so much.

Salo?  Cannibal Holocaust?  I've seen neither, but the descriptions of them are grotesque.  Some people consider Salo art and some think it is worthless.  CH was banned for a while, wasn't it?

not to beat a dead horse, or give any extra press but

1.) irreversible=hated it
2.) gummo=hated it
3.) happiness (no comment)
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
