Ken Park is Larry Clark’s most offensive and unnecessary film. It is provocative for the sake of being so, with little urgency in its quad-story structure. Unlike Kids and Bully, the film has no sense of responsibility in truth telling, realism, or pushing the limits. It is no longer about expressing what has been repressed by the media. It is not about showing the truth of young lives. This is a fantasy, a perverted fantasy from a fanatic. This is a child-like direction for a man who was once a politically inclined questioner of social norms. He no longer questions the norm, but instead cries for attention that his previous questions were ignored.
47/100 – Bad.
