Description

The pre-curser to the cult classic NOWHERE, THE DOOM GENERATION goes far beyond sex and who’s screwing who. When Jordan (James Duvall) and his babe Amy (Rose McGowan) hook up with trouble-man Xavier (heart-throb Jonathan Schaech) carnage ensues. The teen trio falls into a three-way love triangle. With MTV gloss, kinky cameos and ardently alternative music (Nine Inch Nails, Jesus & Mary Chain) Doom sounds show-offy hip and nihilistic. "It's a savagely fun ride fuelled by director Gregg Araki's insight and blunt compassion." - Rollingstone Special Features: * Theatrical Trailer * Photo Gallery * Cast & Crew Filmographies 

Review

Made for a fraction of the cost of Oliver Stone's similarly themed Natural Born Killers, Gregg Araki's The Doom Generation is more persuasively outragous in its cultural satire, scarier in its violence, and more profound in its vision of a hate-fueled, media-drunk America seemingly determined to eat its young and dwell stupidly on their vengeance. Rose McGowan (Scream), James Duval (Nowhere), and Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do!) star as a trio of friends (Schaech's character actually being a complete stranger who steps into their car and into their lives one club-hopping night) who end up on a sex-and-crime spree that draws the fixed stare of television coverage. Araki makes a case for their continuing innocence in a society whose anti-outsider malevolence is barely disguised in the media but is quite naked out in the heartland, where a punishing level of bigotry is not unknown. Araki's jokes and techniques are crude yet forceful, and his anger is absolutely clear where Stone's was obscured and overreaching. The climax is among the most shattering and enraged scenes of '90s cinema. The DVD includes cast information, a theatrical trailer, and French and Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh
