They had ushers outside of the theatre playing the film so a friend and I had to get my mom to accompany us to the theatre so we could finally see the film. That was an awkward experience.
In the summer of '95, a few months shy of my 17th birthday, on a visit to my dad in NYC, he treated me to a screening of the Larry Clark/ Harmony Corine uh, masterpiece, Kids.
Why? I have no idea, since we were both silent on the awkward ride home and haven't talked about it since.
Needless to say, I was more or less scared shitless out of doing drugs or having sex for the duration of my high school years.
Maybe that was the point?
