That comes from a girl I knew when I grew up." (Larry Clark, Filmmaker magazine - 2001)

Gummo

Kids
"You know, I wanted to present the way kids see things, but without all this baggage, this morality that these old middle aged Hollywood guys bring to it. Kids don't think that way. You know, living for the moment... They're living in the moment not thinking about anything beyond that and that's what I wanted to catch." (Larry Clark, ArtCommotion - 1995)
