pretty brilliant way to tie together a loose narrative (symbolized in the hide-and-seek game), with virtually no character development involved. And just when I'm about to give up on it. The last 10 minutes are hilarious, and the last minute is hilarious and sad at the same time.
"I swear I've never been so depressed, miserable, and lonely in my entire life. It's like I know there's got to be somebody out there somewhere just one person in this huge, horrible, unhappy universe who can hold me in their arms and tell me everything is going to be okay. It's like we all know way down in our souls that our generation is going to witness the end of everything. You can see it in our eyes."
All that aestethic trash stunned me, can't say how much I've appreciated it. I had a hard time following the dialogues without subtitles, too. It was worth the trip though, most of the time the editing and the soundrack were just overwhelming. It might grow with time, but I guess this is the kind of film you can only give one or five stars – so that's it, for now. Gonna rewatch. With subtitles.
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.
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.
