This is a documentary about a group of children who are brought up by their alcoholic father and who are now living on their own. They have no one to turn to and they live in a large, filthy abandoned building. They do not have a steady job, are not allowed to go to school and they are told by their mother to stay away from the outside world. When one of the kids, Billy, decides to leave his father and go to school, the other children are furious. Billy is a bright, popular boy who is beloved by his peers. They do not want him to be any different from them. Billy is not happy about his father being absent and he is determined to leave the house. When he finally leaves the house, he finds that he has become friends with another boy who has been abandoned by his mother. This boy is the son of an alcoholic and he has been in and out of the hospital for several years. The other boy, Jeff, is the son of a drug addict. The two boys meet each other and become friends. Jeff and Billy become the "Bad Kids" of the film. The film is extremely depressing and sad. I found it very hard to watch. It is hard to watch a group of people who are so close to each other but they are completely out of touch with one another. They have no one to turn to. I was especially surprised to find out that Jeff and Billy had been abandoned by their mothers. I was also surprised to learn that the father of the children was not allowed to see them because he was an alcoholic. I found this disturbing because the father was the one who was supposed to be caring for the children. The film is very depressing. The film is not for the faint of heart. I found this film very depressing and I would not recommend it to anyone. I would not recommend this film to anyone.

When we first saw "The Bad Kids" in 2003, we were at the point of it's long-awaited DVD release. However, we found ourselves constantly disappointed with the HD quality, and felt that the DVD had been a waste of our time. But now, we finally have a new HD version, and it's a great watch, as it's the first time I have seen the film in the new format. "The Bad Kids" chronicles the friendship of two boys who live in a rundown neighborhood, living in the shadows of the world around them. At times, they are the only two people in the entire community, and their one-dimensional personalities become a burden for the adults. The adults try to hide the "bad kids" from their children, and when the kids learn their true identities, they're even more embarrassed. The movie also documents the difficulties of getting the kids out of their environment. The community is full of hatred and distrust, and the kids have nowhere to go. The adults attempt to intervene, but the kids have already taken action. The director, Udo Kier, is a great writer, and this story is a great representation of his storytelling. He explores the friendships of these two boys, and what they are willing to do to survive. I was curious to see what the film would have been like had they shot it in its original format, and how it would have turned out. As a documentary, "The Bad Kids" is a good one. It presents a documentary style, and it's all well done. The acting is amazing, the music is good, and the editing is spot on. The film does not work as a film in it's own right, but the interview footage is captivating. This documentary style is a wonderful way to showcase the life of the boys, and the world around them. "The Bad Kids" is a great film, but it's not the best documentary ever made. "A Boy and His Dog" is a close second, and it's the one that I have the greatest respect for.

I'm not a movie critic, nor am I the target audience for this film. But, I'll admit that I did get caught up in the thought of how much more powerful our society could be if we just stopped using our intellect to control our bodies. And the sense of sadness that this film left me with, is actually a result of this thought. As the title of this film implies, there are no happy endings, in fact there is a lot of depression and hopelessness. The only bright spots of the film are the acting of the children, who really show a maturity and maturity that I have never seen in children my age. It's no wonder they're the faces of tomorrow, because it's easy to see why they've become so successful in their respective fields. The problem is, their successes are just a product of the "manifestations" of their subconscious. In this case, their father is a drug dealer, the mother is a liar, the father, as well as the mother, is a very controlling person. They are not only abusing their children physically and psychologically, but also spiritually and emotionally. They have no self-esteem, no sense of identity, and they have no voice in their own minds. It is because of this, that we end up watching these kids rise to the top, where they are now. If the parents had not been such whiny, stupid, and abusive individuals, we would not have seen their success. This is because the parents use their children's vulnerability to their advantage. The movie has a very eerie, moody tone to it, which was really appealing to me. The subjects are not things we would like to see, but they are used to give us a sense of hope and positivity. It is the parents' ability to manipulate their children, that is the problem. When we can't manipulate our children, they are left to their own devices, which ultimately leads to a self-destructive situation. The only good thing about this film, is that it was able to show the true nature of abuse, without it becoming an emotional fight. A documentary like this should be able to portray the real issues, without trying to cover up the "bad" side of the story. Hopefully this will eventually be released on DVD, so that we can view this film again, in the future, and continue to see what we can do about the abuse that we all face in our lives. I have also to admit that the second time I saw this film, I found it even more powerful, because the tone and music changed. This is the only reason I rated this film a 7 instead of a 10, because it was more in line with the message of this documentary, than it

With a very "realistic" approach this documentary looks at the life of the Stone Cold Steve Austin. A guy who has a lot of energy, a large ego, and a hell of a lot of sex appeal. But it's not just a bunch of people falling on the floor or saying "Oh my God! I'm going to kill him!". It's also the result of a man's life that has been "ruined" by the women of his life. Women he made a living with, and women who thought they had found him a great man. It's all very interesting and makes you think a little about how much we just take for granted. The documentary also looks at a lot of important issues that people have to deal with on a day to day basis. Like the recent coverage of our government's surveillance programs. Or the country's increased reliance on drones to keep tabs on their citizens. It also looks at the relationship between celebrity and fame. Austin himself is a celebrity, and he plays a role in making the people of his town think he's a hero. And how much of that is a result of his looks? How much of that is a result of how much he makes? It also talks about how the world has changed since Austin's childhood. He's in a different class now, he's taken on a new status and, in a way, he's been forced to grow up. What does he do? How does he cope? What does he think about his life? It's all fascinating and fascinating. He's a fascinating guy. But this is also a man who, at the end of the day, is just a guy. He just has a certain amount of money, and he's in a situation where he's going to make a lot of money. But he's not really satisfied with his life. He's never been happy. I also liked how the documentary didn't just focus on Austin's looks, but also on his personality. I mean, he's a guy who can be a little crazy, and there's a lot of things that he does in his life. But when the documentary is over, there's no question that he's a person. The interviewees in the film range from an old man to a teenager to a woman who is worried about what Austin will do in his next life. And I think that's part of the problem. People are looking at Austin the way they look at a celebrity. Austin is like a "good" celebrity. He's a guy that is accepted in his town, and he's a guy that is respected. He's just a guy. And we've created this monster that makes people think that he's not all he's cracked up to be
