Length: 86 minutes
One night a few years ago I was channel surfing and paused on IFC (my usual go to entertainment for insomnia). On the screen there were two teenage boys riding bikes down a hill to the song "Dragonaut" by the California stoner metal band, Sleep. I didn't know what the hell I was watching but I was really intrigued by the music and continued to watch.
Harmony Korine (who wrote the script for "Kids") directed this film about Xenia, Ohio a town that after being hit by a tornado in 1974 just never seemed to recover. While there is no linear plot, the film instead consists of random clips of the towns residents, many of whom are homeless or very disturbing.
I watched this movie about five times and still couldn't find the meaning of it until a friend explained that there was none. He just told me that the only way to understand it is "to relate to it".
What do you think? Please leave thoughts and feedback if you've seen this movie or after you see it, I'm really curious to hear what others think about it. I'm going out of town for a couple of weeks, I look forward everyones posts!
