Director Larry Clark has made a name for himself based on a particularly harsh flavor of thought-provoking movies. His debut film “Kids” was one of the most disturbing and haunting films I personally have seen. And not just because it was just one of the movies that showed Chloe Sevigny getting an STD. (Practice safe sex, kids.) His films are the stuff of parental nightmares: Kids skipping school, missing curfew, drinking, doing drugs, murdering. Do you know where your kids are right now? Go check!
Today we’re showing two of Larry Clark’s films: Another Day in Paradise, which has Melanie Griffith shooting junk into her neck (!!) and Bully a film so grim it garnered an NC-17 rating. But just because his films are starkly brutal does not mean they are not good. On the contrary, it is almost impossible to look away from Larry Clark’s movies. Tune in tonight and find out for yourself.
