VENICE REPORT: THE SMELL OF US


By the smell of things, Larry Clark's long past his sell-by-date. The Smell of Us premiered at Venice a few days back, and the reviews are pretty rancid. Not all of them, mind - this is the talented director behind Bully, after all - but those critics who dislike it rly dislike it. You can read up on what they have to say in these reviews from Jessica Kiang at The Playlist, Boyd van Hoeij at The Hollywood Reporter, Vittoria Scarpa at Cineuropa and Peter Debruge at Variety.
