First of all Raymond, this is the comment section of a post about Tim Burton’s comedy ‘Mars Attacks.’

Secondly, Kids was absolutely shot in authentic documentary-style, and there’s plenty of evidence to that point. The movie inspired a moral panic in 1995 because it was about the sex lives of teenagers — children. It was realistic, hence the ‘documentary-style’ reference. It featured nudity and drug use and, again, sexual activity. It is a very tough movie to watch.

‘Cuties’ is also about children, dancing in sexually suggestive ways. It is also tough to watch. Thanks for reading!
