Angst and libido are the forefront emotions of the transition into adulthood and Larry Clark captures rebellious youth without diverting the camera for fear of hurting anyone's feelings. We see the darkness behind the closed doors of traditional American middle class suburban values - parents suck, skating rules (and even that's not enough sometimes).
Childhood and teenhood can be the most traumatic, terrifying and chaotic time in one's life, before adulthood and life in society more or less gives people some sort of structure. Larry Clarke isn't afraid to show how violent youth can be, that particular time when we navigate from the age of 'innocence to adulthood, when everything could be possible, beautiful or crushed and destroyed.
