Clark needs to be more patient and understanding of how to get to the higher themes he is trying to convey.

yeah but then he wouldn't be able to masturbate to it, would he?


That's true. In times of loneliness, I've found Larry Clark movies nice substitutes to Cinemax soft core porn.

i hope ken park gets distribution because it makes kids and bully look like ernest saves christmas.  i can just imagine some of the messages on this thread.  you would go ape shit on some of the moral and ethical debates pertaining to this film.

i heard lions gate was going to release it at some point but i don't know anymore.  it's been a while.  it was playing at the toronto festival two years ago and maybe it's been shelved.
the one last hit that spent you...

I think people would talk about it for about fifteen minutes before getting bored by the conversation. I don't know, maybe it's just because I didn't like it, but I don't think its morals and ethics are all that complicated.

Well, in spite of Larry's teen sex fetishism, I think his films are pretty great. I loved Kids and Bully and can't wait to see Ken Park.

Not to mention the fact that Harmony Korine is a guilty pleasure, too.

I saw Bully at the Venice Film Festival and almost laughed out loud during that part where the kids are sitting there in that living room and he cuts between shots of the disturbed youth and an Eminem video.


funny, because eminem mentions "kids" in one of his songs (guilty conscience). i guess rarry crark is repaying the favor.

Question for those who have seen 'Ken Park':


** SPOILERS **


The 3 scene near the end-- real or 'utopia'?

Very real. 50% disturbing, 50% slightly beautiful. 1% unbelieveable.

101% Larry Clark.

I saw bully the other day, it was only now released in portugal, which is great because after seeing the piece of shit that was ken park, I was pleasently surprised. But I would like to have seen this one before elephant, I think van Sant borrowed some of clark's ideas, like mentioning rap videos, video games, absense of parents... but never really pointing his finger on anything as the cause of violence.
It's a good film, good screenplay and good acting. I hated some shots, like the one where they are on the front yard of the hitman and the camera was going round and round for two minutes. The relations between characters are very intelligently developed up until the killing. The ending is perfect, every kid is "fatalized", turned into a state of humiliation worse than death, like in mortal kombat.
"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."
-Emir Kusturica

Larry Clark to Direct Wassup Rockers
Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Larry Clark (Kids, Bully) will direct Wassup Rockers, featuring street kids in leading roles, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Clark's script is set in South Central Los Angeles and follows a group of largely Hispanic teenagers who, instead of conforming to the hip-hop culture of their neighborhood, ride skateboards, listen to punk rock and wear their clothes tight.

Constantly harassed, they take buses to Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Hollywood, where they skate and catch the attention of the local rich girls, inevitably leading to trouble with parents, police and boyfriends.

Palm Pictures will distribute and produce. Production is expected to begin in Los Angeles this summer for a release next year.
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol
