USA 1984
Dir Martin Bell
With Erin Blackwell, Baby Gramps, Rat, Lou Ellen Couch
Certificate 18

An unforgettably vivid documentary on the hardscrabble lives of Seattle’s homeless street kids, Bell’s Oscar®-nominated portrait of America’s underbelly would prove a key influence on the likes of Harmony Korine. The film introduces us to tragic characters like hustler ‘Rat’ and teen prostitute ‘Tiny,’ but captures their lives with a raw poetry. One of the key documentaries of the decade.
