Disturbing precisely because it is so believable, Kids goes well beyond any previous American film in frankly describing the lives of at least a certain group of modern teenagers.

The film may not say anything new, but the way it says it does, in the end, make it some sort of landmark. Depressing.

Kids is the kind of movie that needs to be talked about afterward.
