US filmmaker Larry Clark has launched a scathing attack on critics who slammed his controversial 1995 movie Kids - claiming they are ruled by double standards. Clark remains livid that Kids - about a group of New York City teenagers' irresponsible attitude towards sex and drugs - was deemed exploitative when the media constantly capitalise on the sexually overt behaviour of young celebrities. He says, "Do I exploit teen sexuality more than the tabloid newspapers who have pictures of famous young women getting out of a car with no pants on? No f**king way. F**k the critics." Clark's 2002 film Ken Park was banned in many countries, including his native America, after the director refused to cut graphic scenes which showed what appeared to be teenagers having actual sex on camera. And he blames the US censorship board for being prejudiced towards budget filmmakers in favour of big Hollywood names. Clark says, "I've been working my whole life to get an R rating. It's all to do with the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), those c**k sucking motherf**kers. Let me tell you about the f**kin MPAA. They are a censorship board run by the studios to protect their films. So they s**t all over the smaller independent films like mine. "This means we're allowed to watch Sharon Stone f**king the s**t out of Michael Douglas before she stabs him (in Basic Instinct), but I can't show what I wanna show. It's the most corrupt system in the world."
