    I honestly can't think of any films that you could really compare to Kids. You're talking about the film set in New York - two teens going about their day?

    was thinking Bully as well.

    TS you should check out a film called Manic - it's from Joseph Gordon Levit's Indy film era

    or the one with ryan gosling half nelson.

    if you want good new York feels, 25th hour, basketball diaries. or brooklyns finest.

    basketball diaries is probably close to the rawness of kids.

    My health teacher in high school showed us Kids. The lesson was about the risks of substance abuse and unprotected intercourse, also the issue of child neglect in large cities.

    Good times.

    Streetwise is a documentary that resembles Kids a lot. I think it actually influenced the director. It's on youtube, I'd link if I wasn't on my phone.

    You could try out Less Than Zero. For that LA rich kid with a buncha problems vibe... If you were just looking for something to compare it to.

    ^^ haha yeah, used to skate with a bunch of people in this movie way back when. Javier Nunez is the "big hit man" & the guy peeing is Jeff Pang, one of the first members of the Zoo York family.

    Havoc is another piece of shit movie you might like. I think that's what the guy who said Manic may have meant, but maybe not. It has JGL in an utterly embarrassing role.

    Edit: Nope different movies.

    Not sure if I know any "KIDS" type movies on Netflix. A guide to recognizing your saints reminds me of it but not sure of its on netflix.

    I used http://www.tastekid.com/like/KIDS/movies and the results:

    Not sure if any of these are on netflx.

    For horror:
    Oculus was good imo.
    Dream house was worth watching even though it has bad reviews. Maybe I just like Daniel Craig.

    Kidulthood is the UK version of KIDS. I'm pretty sure Netflix still has it. It isn't bad.

    I love that movie. It seems like there wasn't really a script.
