The Doom Generation

Dir: Greg Araki
Star: James Duval, Rose McGowan, Johnathon Schaech, Cress Williams

[18] Self proclaimed queer film- maker Araki tries his hand at a hetero movie, another entry in the rapidly overpopulated "psychopath lovers on a cross country rampage" genre. Clueless meets Natural Born Killers here: two teenage lovers fall in with a bisexual Trent Reznor lookalike and kill people. Disappointingly ho-hum for about 80 minutes, only the final five deliver on the "welcome to hell" promise from the first scene. The finale is vicious, graphic, and may suffer at the BBFC but by that point, you just don't care.
