Seriously, I think Gregg Araki has an unhealthy obsession with dead dogs and I definitely don't like it but this film is LOVE. At least, like Lilith says, 'Dogs eating people is cool.' And is LOVE too THAT INSTANT when you start to listen Thom Yorke's voice but you think you're freaking out...but then you realise it: yes, there is a Radiohead song in this film, 'How can you be sure'!
It's like a study of cool kids in 90's MTV where they get into sex, drugs, music, more sex, even more drugs and a little bit of teen deaths here and there. For short, its a 90's version of SKINS as a movie. It's careless, reckless with it's plot, absurd, entertaining, it's the 90's teen angst in a nutshell.
The lack of substance against the richness of the characters and of the scenes makes this movie an innovating experience. For me, it felt like if a train had just ran over me. It is very intense, but in the end, there's nothing, just the feelings. Just like a trip on drugs.
This whole sci-fi subplot had the "screw you guys, I'm going home" effect on me. Unsurprisingly, the movie ends with a Kafkaesque space bug saying "I'm outta here" while the camera pans on a existentially confused and disappointed James Duvall (Dark). Having seen "Doom Generation" before the movie felt repetitive but definitely the cinematography is worth giving it a shot.
