Wassup Rockers is a strange film by a very unusual director. It doesn't have the hard-hitting edge of previous works like Kids, Ken Park, or Bully, but it still proves to be a very interesting and messy experiment by a director seeking new boundaries and topics. It's also strangely light-hearted, considering the director (though not entirely without moments of violence and some sexual content). The story follows a group of Latino boys from Los Angeles who like to skate and play punk rock music in a band. One day, they decide to travel by bus to Beverly Hills where they find themselves in a series of misadventures like running from the police, visiting a hot girl at her mansion and getting into a fight with preppy boys, and other bizarre scenarios. Amidst the frantic pacing, the film also takes time to tackle the issue of race as the boys are scrutinized for being Latino, as well as the issue of class. It doesn't dive deep into its subject matters, making it feel like a bit of a step back compared to the uncompromising, in-your-face tone by Clark's aforementioned films. But what really holds this film together are the cast who are interesting, funny, and feel believable. The film may be shaky on a story level, but as a character piece, it works quite well. In the end, Wassup Rockers is another enjoyable film by a controversial director. It may not have the bite of his previous work, but it remains a strangely compelling nonetheless.
