Aroview: Cult photographer Larry Clark's debut, 24hrs of New York streetkid life, attracted immediate controversy. The unblinking depictions of sex, drugs and petty crime, by turns insightful and gratuitous, are likely to divide any audience. Whether the 'cinema verite' stylings conceal an exploitative tendency is another sticky question, but this ultimately remains serious-minded and essential viewing.

2 stars (Good Try) Telly, a promiscuous HIV-positive teen, and his mate Casper, hang out on the streets of New York 'de-flowering' as many girls as they can. Was supposed to be a wake-up call for the 90s, but for who? Gratuitously violent & explicit. Didn't get it.~GenXGirl
4 stars (Very Good) The screenplay looks pretty authentic. It raises the issues of Kids at a loose end, trying to fill in the days & nights, staying together for protection.Chloe is terrific but even after 2 viewings I still can't describe Leo Fitzpatrick's character.~tubbs
