______________The Big Lebowski9/10 toes
My first viewing - I am going to quit my job, drink white russians and reassess my life.
From a narrative and directing standpoint this film rivals the best of documentary filmmaking. Except, its not a documentary. Its a disgusting cautionary tale of trash culture. Its an urban nightmare influenced by the AIDS epidemic. How in the hell did Larry Clark pull this off? How in the hell is he not in prison now? This is a brilliant and sick film.****out of *****
p.s. the first time I saw this few knew of Chloe Sevigny - but she is at the core of this film and carries most of its emotional weight
Coen's go on to make better and classic films. Larry Clark fades into pedophiliac obscurity.There is only one Kids and it beats The Big Lebowski.
