Best movie ever!

Seriously, best movie ever. Fighting jehova witness bros, chair wrestling, albino low riders, kids huffing glue, the fun never ends. With that said, the mother son tapping scene touched my heart.

tried too hard...

This is a extreamlly hard movie to watch. While i loved Kids, this movie is not the directors best. It's has some "shocking" moments, but if you throw an hour of shocking moments together with no HINT of a plot, you can't call that a movie. So sadly, I'm gonna have to poo-poo this movie. And I hate doing that.

Painful experience

This movie was truly, completely awful. I watched this along with half a dozen friends, and not one of us could determine was the plot or even the point of this movie was. I guess none of us can appriciate or savour a five minute segment where a family of white trash goes all World Wrestling Entertainment on a cheap dining room chair. Or watching a kid eat spaghetti while taking a bath (the scene is much, much worse than just that). Or any of the other acts of complete stupidity that follow. Read the Movie Synopsis above but remove all of the intellectual justifications of wierdness and that's basically what the movie is about. There's no "arty dialogue" to be found unless you're HEAVILY medicated. I rated this a one not out of spite or anti-artistic reasons, but because this is a truly painful piece of junk. Forced screenings of this in prison would solve America's crime problem instantly. "Rob that liquor store? No way! If I got caught, it'd be Gummo again!"

i honestly don't know whether to applaud this movie or pan it. it's well-worth watching once, but it's a lot like a really intricate train wreck that you just can't turn away from.

the characters as depicted honestly seem like they should be a parody, but they're also bizarrely believable. as my friends and i watched it we wavered between wanting to laugh and fearing that perhaps it's more documentary than contrived. if you're fascinated or amused by 'slice of life' films that highlight the kookier aspects of American society, definitely watch this film.
