Fly-on-the-wall documentary about artist Tim Rollins and his disciplined but productive after-school classes in modern art for the troubled, often troublesome kids of the impoverished South Bronx. The proof of the pudding is in the fact that KOS paintings - usually inspired by literary texts - show in New York's Museum of Modern Art: no bad achievement when the kids start off as truants, Nintendo addicts or worse. But the film itself, while worthy, is conservative in the extreme.
