Home / Gregg Araki’s THE DOOM GENERATION Limited Engagement
Teen angst, random acts of violence, and the symbolically ambiguous open road mingle in this newly restored cult classic from independent auteur Gregg Araki. Drifters Jordan White (James Duval) and Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) pick up stranger X (Jonathon Schaech) coming home from a nightclub and embark on an insane thrill ride through the Los Angeles nightlife in which everyone they meet seems to mistake Amy as the person they’re trying to kill. On the run from who knows what, the trio won’t all make it out alive. Featuring Margaret Cho, Parker Posey, and a special cameo by industrial rockers Skinny Puppy.
Part of Araki’s “Teenage Apocalypse” trilogy along with TOTALLY F***ED UP (1993) and NOWHERE (1997), THE DOOM GENERATION was ironically billed as “A Heterosexual Movie by Gregg Araki.” The film’s polarizing premiere at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival marked Araki’s entry into mainstream discourse and cemented his reputation for radical yet stylish storytelling.
