'Kids' TRASH: The filmmaker's obsession with underage sex is unsettling and more than a little lurid. With children's values being corrupted at earlier and earlier ages, a film about the deflowering of young women is the last sort of example that should be set for suggestable youth. ART: This film tells it like it is. Larry Clark and screenwriter Harmony Korine depict a realistic view of aimless teenagers that's more accurate than any parent would want to admit to him or herself.
