Ken Park

Co-directed with his Bully cameraman Ed Lachman and based on an old screenplay by Harmony Korine (he wrote for Clark circa Kids, but then they fell out), this is the director's third film about teen alienation - and the best. Explicit, excessive, and outrageous (at the screening I attended in Venice there was a spontaneous round of applause for the auto-asphyxiation cumshot, and another ripple for the pissing scene), but underneath, it's an unmistakeably compassionate movie about fucked-up kids and their even more fucked-up parents. The blowjob scene is another shocker, but just look at the tenderness in the three-way love scene.
