They [Hollywood] pound you over the head with these messages and then there’s nothing left. There’s no margin of the undefined; it’s all there for you. In all my favorite films there’s always something missing. Something to make me curious. I wanted to do that with ‘Kids.’ I think one of the reasons why everyone’s so angry is because it doesn’t give you a definitive YES or NO — this is bad, this is good. If you have any kind of sense you’ll take away some kind of message, but if you can’t see past the shock, you’re not going to get anything.” —Harmony Korine
