'Kids' turns 20

I can't believe Kids is 20 years old. The first time I saw it my brain was divided between "What the f*ck is going on?" and "I prefer having sex with older women." I was in high school and after borrowing a VHS copy of the movie from a friend, I went straight to my room and started watching the flick. I didn't like it, but it left quite an impression on me.

Kids portrayed the gritty lifestyles of NYC teenagers during the height of the AIDS epidemic in the mid-1990s and was the source of widespread controversy due to its explicit portrayal of underage substance abuse and sex. Embedded below is an illegal copy of the movie. See if you can get through the whole thing before it gets taken down.
