Marfa Girl - Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview

At worse, Marfa Girl is just another Larry Clark film featuring actors who look like teenagers, maybe are teenagers, having sex and odd conversations. Though, at best, it captures the peculiarities of living in a small town in which there is nothing to do so everyone is either having sex, getting high, or taking advantage of those they consider weaker than them. 761 more words
