Clark's art inspired a generation of photographers and filmmakers. Martin Scorcese and Gus Van Sant have acknowledged Clark's inspiration for Taxi Driver and Drugstore Cowboy. Through the assistance and encouragement of Scorcese and Van Sant, Clark was able to make Kids.
Clark's film Kids was released to overwhelming critical and box office success. Janet Maslin of The New York Times called it a wake-up call to the world and Amy Taubin of The Village Voice said it is "a masterpiece, the kind of film that pulls the ground out from under you." Clark's inspiration for ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE was the novel of the same title by Eddie Little. Clark immediately made the connection between Little"s book and his own art in Tulsa and decided to bring his vision to the big screen.
