What always struck me as funny were all the people protesting that kids were not like that. Probably the same people who've never ventured out of their small towns and small minds. It launched a couple of careers, but my favorite actor was Justin Pierce who played Casper.
I'm re-rating this from 3 stars to 5 stars cause this film really stuck to me and how raw it is. Re-watching this made me realize how big of an influence this film is to contemporary filmmaking and how powerful the dialogues are.

The actual way these people thought and lived their lives was kinda more disturbing than the HIV content. One can only wonder what kind of community and culture produced such soulless monsters. Writing was great, props to Korine. Sad film but also great.
"When you're young, not much matters. When you find something that you care about, then that's all you got. When you go to sleep at night you dream of pussy. When you wake up it's the same thing.
