By Harmony Korine
The unique Ritalin child, concord Korine burst at the scene with Kids, a movie so gritty and unsettling in its depiction of youngster existence that it used to be slapped with an NC-17 ranking and banned in a few theaters around the kingdom. In many ways, the media frenzy over the ranking overshadowed the harrowing portrait of young children destroying their lives and the then twenty-one-year-old screenwriter who created them. "Whether you notice the motion picture as a masterpiece or as sensationalism," wrote Lynn Hirshberg, "the motion picture is relentless and fantastic and intensely anxious. It's powerful-both steel-eyed and attractive; scary and captivating."
Now, during this first publication of fictional set items, Korine captures the fragmented moments of a lifestyles saw in the course of the demented lens of media, television, and teenage obsession. Korine reinvents the unconventional during this hugely experimental montage of scenes that appear either actual and surreal even as. With a filmmaker's eye and a prankster's glee, this strange choice of jokes, half-remembered scenes, discussion fragments, motion picture rules, and suicide notes is an episodic, epigrammatic lovesong to the area of pictures. Korine is the voice of his media-savvy new release and A Crack-Up on the Race Riots is the satiric lovechild of his darkish mind's eye.
