Gregg Araki’s provocative, darkly humorous, delightfully depraved fifth feature premiered at Sundance in 1995, but hasn’t been seen again in its complete form … until now. After a wild night, troubled teenage lovers Jordan White (James Duval, Donnie Darko) and Amy Blue (Rose McGowan, Planet Terror, in her first starring role) pick up dangerously handsome drifter Xavier Red (Jonathan Schaech, That Thing You Do!). When Xavier inadvertently kills a convenience store clerk, the trio embarks on a sex-and-violence-filled odyssey through a bizarre America of random psychos, sleazy motels and quickie marts. Restoring scenes cut for the film’s original release, Araki has lovingly restored The Doom Generation to its full, unhinged glory as a Road Murder Sex Comedy like no other. Featuring appearances by one of the most aggressively ‘90s cast ever assembled, including Margaret Cho, Perry Farrell, Dustin Nguyen, Parker Posey, Skinny Puppy and Heidi Fleiss! (Dir. by Gregg Araki, 1995, USA/France, 83 mins., Not Rated)
