An average movie

Larry Clark is not really a famous director here in Listal but I find his work as a director really interesting. Originally, he was an acclaimed photographer and directors such as Gus Van Sant and Martin Scorsese have stated that they were influenced by Clark's early photography. I must admit that I didn’t like much his directing debut, ‘Kids’. I mean, it was a very interesting flick, no doubt, but it was too much focused on being controversial and the characters portrayed were borderline caricatural. Eventually, it took me many years to see his following directing effort. Like ‘Kids’, I thought it was not bad but still nothing mind-blowing though. Even though it is still pretty dark and gloomy, compared to his other movies (‘Kids’, ‘Bully’, ‘Ken Park’), it is actually his most conventional movie so far and maybe that’s why I was a little bit disappointed. I mean, it is not bad at all but it remains a rather standard drug related feature. Still, like most of the movies made by Larry Clark, I really liked the dark tone and James Woods was just awesome as usual. To conclude, like ‘Kids’, even though it is not really satisfying, it is still worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
