From cinema's maestro of indie queer pop cinema, welcome to Gregg Araki's messed-up world, a concrete jungle teeming with teenage lust, abundant drugs and all-out infidelity. Before Kaboom, Mysterious Skin and The Living End, there was TOTALLY F***ED UP.
A film for anyone who has grown up gay and lived through the pain of alienation, this self-consciously cool story of the gay teen underground is New Queer Cinema at its edgiest - a humorous yet moving study of an unwanted generation.
Starring James Duval (Donnie Darko), and featuring music from Wolfgang Press, Ministry, Ride, Pale Saints and The Jesus and Mary Chain.
"Totally f***ing brilliant" - Gay Times
"A candid, knowing, often funny look at gay-teen hell" - The Advocate
"Subtelty is something of which Gregg Araki will never be accused" - Vanity Fair
"Punker than John Waters, but still in his debt, compromise isn't on Araki's agenda" - Little White Lies
