Review: The Doom Generation

A modern classic of cult indie cinema, Gregg Araki’s The Doom Generation is finally coming to DVD. The tagline of ‘sex, mayhem, whatever’ lets us know what we’re in for as we are submerged in this maniacally grisly update of the ‘couple-on-the-run’ movie.

The film follows young lovers Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) and Jordan White (James Duval), who have been together all of three months (practically a lifetime for disaffected grunge kids). Trash-mouthed speed-freak Amy is Lolita’s evil twin, while her endearingly dim-witted boyfriend Jordan tags along after her like a puppy. Bored out of their alienated teenage minds, they are suddenly pounced upon by a ruggedly handsome drifter named Xavier Red (Johnathon Schaech), initiating a wild road trip complete with sex, drugs and gruesome murder.
