Disturbing, dark, low-budget independent film about teen-agers in New York City. The story focuses on Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick), a teen who has a goal to de-flower as many virgins as he can. When one of his old encounters discovers that she is H.I.V.-positive, after only one encounter with a guy, Telly remains undaunted. Written by

When you're young, not much matters. When you find something that you care about, then that's all you got. When you go to sleep at night you dream of pussy. When you wake up it's the same thing. It's there in your face. You can't escape it. Sometimes when you're young the only place to go is inside. That's just it - fucking is what I love. Take that away from me and I really got nothing.

An almost real reality happening before you, capsuled in a movie
Kids is shocking in your face stuff from the first frame. The magic of the film is that it has a documentary feel, not enough to make it documentary, where the other side of it is movie, but with a reality staring you in the face. Director Clark, has made the right choice too, using non thespians, where Chloe Sevingy as the aids infected Jenny, I must say, was an acting revelation. I know a lot of dudes who are exactly like Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick, another discovered talent) who don't respect any thing. All Telly loves is creating an impressive tally of deflorations of virgins, as seen in the first shock scene, having him, making it with a gullible girl. What disgusted me is when he left her apartment, before going to brag to his best friend, Casper, who down stairs, waiting for him. He produces a gob of spit and lets it drop from his lips, falling through the gap of stairway, proud with another victory. Kids is a pull no punches film, with a lot of expletive language and quite a bit of sex, but this is the generation we live in. The main plot, basically consists of Jenny finding out she's HIV positive, where she's only done it with guy: Telly. This day her whole world has come to an end, before her, which really had me imagining, what It'd be like if I was in her predicament. That taxi driver scene I really liked, with the cheery taxi driver, trying to be helpful but really doesn't know the extent of Jenny's sadness, where one foolish mistake can't cost your life. Now driven to find Telly, who's about to deflower another girl, much less gullible (the public pool scene I liked, almost semi erotic) it's a race to find him where they're about to do it on that same night, where a big party is happening, yo. I'll be honest, the film doesn't have the best script in the world, where it's chosen to go for reality instead. Clark's debut film, really works, rough, raw, and always compelling. If you want escapist fare, see other movies, but if you really hard edged reality, with strong themes and want to be shocked or challenged, this is one of the movies for you, with a script by Spring Breaker's Harmony Korine.
