Plot

Ken Park focuses on several teenagers and their tormented home lives. Shawn seems to be the most conventional. Tate is brimming with psychotic rage, Claude is habitually harassed by his brutish father and coddled, rather uncomfortably, by his enormously pregnant mother. Peaches looks after her devoutly religious father, but yearns for freedom. They're all rather tight, or so they claim. But they spend precious little time together and none of them seems to know much about one another's family lives. This bizarre dichotomy underscores their alienation # the result of suburban ennui, a teenager's inherent sense of melodrama, and the disturbing nature of their home environments.
 

Comments

Youth Hell How is it possible to ban such a movie? Yes there are X-rated scenes and yes, there are some heavy violence, although you've probably seen worse. Until the harm really is proved, everybody over 18 should be entitled to see whatever they like. The 15-year-old limit in Sweden might be discussed however. But let's go back to this movie. Larry Clark has done again for sure. There is no director who can take extreme evil and put it in real life like he is. There is really an air of normal Californian life in the surroundings here, but behind that you find incest, totally sick religion, insanity and hatred. And you believe it to be real. That is much because of the extremely good young actors. There really is no plot here, just an ongoing situation. It's not easy to see this, even if you have a rather big tolerance towards pornography and blood. But you really ought to see it. One of the best films of 2002!
