Kids). Gummo is the dark tale of a town that was hit by a tornado, leaving the people financially and mentally damaged. Gummo mainly focus's on the youth and the film depicts directionless kids, lacking in moral and social education.
Personally I am a big fan of this movie and like it much better then Kids (Which I also like very much). Still I can understand why others might not be interested in this sort of thing. Gummo is filthy in a way that could only be understood after viewing. Its almost as if a awful stink comes off of the screen with the dirty imagery of poverty. The bathtub scene should sum it all up for you.
