Wassup Rockers

Directed by Larry Clark

Instead of adhering to the norms of their South Central neighborhood, a group of skater boys opt to bus into Hollywood and Beverly Hills, where they attract local rich girls – and plenty of trouble with the police, jealous boyfriends, and nervous parents.

Wassup Rockers Directed by Larry Clark

Critics reviews

Although obviously an extension of Clark’s earlier film work on many levels, Wassup Rockers is, by the same token, an anti-Kids(1995), an anti-Ken Park (2003). These kids are just that: kids. They ‘play themselves’ at a slightly earlier moment of their development, when Clark first encountered them out on the streets, around the age of thirteen. The film captures (or re-creates) them at this curious moment, not exactly of innocence, but of a certain pre-adolescence.
