  A heterosexual movie by Greg Araki

| | See all isopropophlex's reviews (28)

"A heterosexual movie by Greg Araki" is the subtitle for this movie, and after watching it, the sexuality is only one of the few things that linger. Stylish, nihilistic, aimless and violent (yes, it's about young people), the movie runs just under a fast pace to tell a modern-day bonnie and clyde story with a higher portrayal of sex and strong language.

Visually, the film is sensational, with tight shots of anything araki wishes to derail, and colour saturation and lighting shifted into overdrive. Fast-cutting made-up TV shows and news bulletins with the main events of the film give the movie a social voice against the view of youth, politics and other such cultures. The term "666" will often appear, a nod to the level of self-destruction and condemnation brought by the movie.

The soundtrack to the movie has a great sarcastic and nihilistic edge, sleek and fast moving with a voice of its own, if you can peel the music away from course dialog or misunderstandings and firearms.

The movie is a slick ride throughout, not too long or short, and fits in well with Araki's other work, as well as alongside the work of Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and even arthouse cinema.

This is one crazy movie from start to finish, a very cool and stylish looking teen rebel road trip from hell that does no really have a plot or any rules its just a big insane chain of events that our 3 characters end up embarking on, there is murder and lots of sex and its all done with a very dark humour, its really worth checking this out if you want something original and Rose McGowan fans will be happy as she bares allot of skin.
