QotD: “joyless, passionless, humourless, incurious about real people’s real lives … the compulsive persistence of the porn addict”

The photographer and film-maker who made his sensational debut with Kids, nearly 20 years ago, returns yet again to the activity of gloating over young people’s bodies, with huge amounts of explicit sex. But the party looks to be well and truly over.

In fact, it looks as if it has gone straight to the hungover-and-can’t-face-clearing-up stage before any fun has been had by anyone. This film is joyless, passionless, humourless, incurious about real people’s real lives. There is no energy or verve, just the compulsive persistence of the porn addict.
