Larry Clark (Kids, Bully) is branching out a bit for his upcoming film, The Smell of Us, which takes place in France and is co-written by a French poet he met at an exhibition in Paris, Matthieu Landais. Emphasis on "a bit," though, since the plot supposedly concerns teenage "self-destructive skateboarders."

Rocker Pete Doherety will apparently play a role in the film, but, as usual, the focus is on messed up adolescents. And now, courtesy of a new web series, you can meet them and take part in their summer shooting a movie with Clark. Directed by Thomas Kimmerlin, A Summer With Larry Clark's Kids will apparently document the lives of the four principal skaters, Théo, Hugo, Diane and Lucas as they act in the film. It premieres tomorrow, July 17 on the site of the French Newspaper Liberation, and will unspool weekly in eight episodes lasting six minutes each. For now though, you can get a look at the trailer, which feels like it could be advertising an actual Clark film.

    Well, Mr Clark, I thought Gus Van Sant told that story in Paranoid Park(2007) already......well, it could be something to watch.

    "The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has added Alfred Hitchcock's nine surviving British silent films to its register for restoration and preservation. According to the British Film Institute, these films "are among the greatest achievements of British silent cinema, and are blueprints for the rest of his body of work."

    Yep, Hitchcock deserves to be saved.

    "If following the European box office for the past two years has taught me anything, it's that Europeans love family-oriented CGI animation movies from the U.S. And so, it is with little surprise that I report that Despicable Me 2 is doing gangbusters in every territory where it opened"

    No surprise there, Mr Clark, people love this stuff.

    Thanks for the wrap up, good work, Mr Clark.

    I bet there will be voyeristic leary shots of teens, Larry Clark has a predator eye when i comes to the way he shoots young folk, it can be a little uncomfortable at times...I've noticed the same thing with Harmony Korine..
