Option 1Option 2

Avg Rating: 4.3 / 5. Voted: 134

No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Larry Clark
Starring: Leo Fitzpatrick (Telly), Justin Pierce (Casper), Chloe Sevigny (Jennie), Rosario Dawson (Ruby)
Country: United States
Language: English
Runtime: 01:31:31
Genres: Teensploitation, Drugs

Plot – Spoilers:
Kids follows a day in the lives of Telly and Casper and their friends. Telly considers himself a virgin specialist and enjoys the conquest. He’s charming and his funny quips make him popular on the scene. Casper, his constant companion, admires Telly’s sexual exploits but is really more interested in staying high. Jennie lost her virginity to Telly and hasn’t been as sexually active since. Her friend Ruby on the other hand has, and convinces her to join her for an STD test.

Kids stunningly captures the emptiness, sexuality and violence of a certain phase and is all the more remarkable for its use of untrained actors.

Random Trivia (Massive Spoilers):
In fact, so convincing is the acting that people mistook it for a documentary and would abuse Leo Fitzpatrick (who played Telly) as they thought he was still out there spreading the disease.

im an extremely empathic person so watching this movie at my 23 years old was very traumatic. it is deffentiely triggering. just a psychopath, a pederast or a inmature young dumb boy with a rude background will enjoy the film and feel inspire by this. i think this movie is so important for girls to watch. life is really tough.

also i think skins is the disney version of this movie.

I remember my sister had the book to this movie, i use to read it. But the first time watching it on this site i was like damn, everyone in this movie is a horrible grotesque person that should be shot on sight, apart from the nice taxi driver.

They literally cut to a clip of his mugshot. Iā€™m pretty sure he was a predator

I can not believe my parents let me watch this as a kid. There was really no parenting going on in the early 90’s. Watching it again as an adult and its cringeworthy. Lots of lessons from this movie but good lord and Telly is totally a rapist pedophile. Didn’t have the words for it when I was younger but that is what it he is

He kept going after young virgins, no mater their age. His conquest at the first of the film is only 12 years old. She did ask him to wait, because it was starting to hurt, but he didn’t stop. I think that is why he’s described as a rapist pedophile.

There were points I was laughing out loud and a lot of it is just dumb kids doing stupid shit for fun, so it’s a fun watch.
But it’s really hard to watch Jenny, or that kids sister and the girls’, side. The ending was especially sad. The ending didn’t feel fulfilling to me, but overall it had some really good messages and characters you can hate, love, and sympathize for.

Another amazing work by Harmony! He never fails me. Fucking horny bastard Casper in the end not knowing that his horniness was gonna ruin his life. The power of the puss is crazy yo.

It’s actually quite unlikely for a man to catch HIV from a woman via a single act of vaginal intercourse. Possible, but not likely. Just thought I’d throw that in there.

^Good point. Because of my school’s “scare the kids away from sex by freaking them out about STDs” sex education, when I first saw this movie I thought everybody must have AIDS in the end. In reality the chance of transmission is less than 1%. I do however still wonder whether Larry Clark and Harmony Korine were aware of the actual statistics

Unlikely doesn’t do it justice. My understanding as someone who reads a ton of physiology papers for my work is that the risk is a fraction of a percent (even less than @Jakamo suggested^, though his post was good).

it had it’s moments but I couldn’t take Caspers buddy seriously, The kid literally looks like a young version of Christopher Mintz plasse who plays fogell in Superbad, but on raging hormones. I guess they got what they deserve for being raging fuckboys. I have friends that did contract HIV and I’m grateful I did most of my partying with the girl I loved. Sure, I loved pussy when I was 15 but I was more into selling pot and a little bit of coke while working a legit job during the day (Hey, my parents were broke and I wanted a Super Nintento and other shit). I had a few female friends who were just notorious sluts, of course the ones that were, contracted STD’s. it’s just inevitable really, until you realize what you’re worth as a person. This stuff still happens today and probably worse, social media isn’t helping. And people wonder while pedophilia is on the rise and the legal age of consent in California has been lowered to 14. It’s gotten worse and fake news won’t even cover the statistics of new HIV/AIDS cases, I guess they’d rather keep cramming that covid bullshit down our throats even though it has a 98.6% recovery rate and a lot of funding has been cut to help our youth and it’s a sad thing indeed.

At the end of the movie does anybody know if Rosario Dawson was actually getting fucked by those two boys? If so please post the link(s) to the proof. That is, if links are allowed on here in the comments section? TIA!
