Storyline

Like the previous movie, "Marfa Girl (2012)", this movie follows the lives of some young, down-and-out characters in the dusty town of Marfa, Texas. The previous film's heroes Adam, Marfa Girl, Inez, Miguel, Donna, and Tomek, all of whom reprise their roles from the original. This time around we follow the group as they deal with a heart-breaking tragedy, one that only further fuels their disaffection, boredom, and desire to break free from their small-town lives. As is expected, the film is filled with sex, drugs, bad decisions, and characters that are hard to shake. Chief among them is the skater Adam, who has two children from two different women, a young Latino slacker who is inexplicably the town's resident sex symbol and apparently irresistible to women; Inez, his live-in lover; and "Marfa Girl", now the mother of a baby boy as the result of a brutal rape. Written by Rotten T.

Larry Clark Redux
26 April 2020 | by bastosSee all my reviews

In the same year as Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Mission Impossible 6 and Incredibles 2 comes the sequel everybody was asking for, Marfa Girl 2. I guess Larry Clark also has the right to have a cinematic universe... Well, this one starts after the explosive events of the first one and deals with its aftermath. Larry Clark sure can shoot a movie, if only he could write one as well... There are some themes here that are worth exploring, and in the hands of someone more capable would make for a compelling drama, but Larry Clark seems to only be interested in exploring the surface and then shock you with either sex or some unexpected violence. I also found the acting to be quite subpar, which I found quite distracting, with the exception of Drake Burnette in the titular role. In the end I found this to be a pretty disappointing movie from someone I know can do much better.
