Perfection. It captures the highest realism of cinema that not even Dogme ever reached. What is realism? Maybe it's not shaky movements or mundane situations but instead an immersive journey into a way of living. It's the youth to the extreme and you feel like you were with the gang the whole time.
It's such a raw portrait of some teenager times in the 90s that it even hurts to watch. But that's how it works so well on people to watch it: it makes you feel angry inside because of the careless and carnal way of seeing things among young people without thinking of consequences.
Make America’s youth great again! Clark has a proper understanding of what being a teenager is like and allows the audience to see what is really going on in a typical day of a teenager’s life. As long as there is sex, drugs, lust and love, the kids are alright. The Offspring is wrong. This one is a personal favourite, due to its’ storyline and characters.
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.
