Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 11/16/1995
"...A savagely funny ride fueled by Araki's insight and blunt compassion..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/1996
"...Araki packs the soundtrack with hardcore indie music....Much of the comedy comes from the sheer hyperbolic zest with which he tackles the material..."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/31/1996
"...Simultaneously giddy and disturbing....[A] rewarding demonstration of the aesthetics of willful incoherence." -- Rating: B+
Variety - 02/06/1995
"...A stunning film with superlative production values....Stylishly yet personally expressive, THE DOOM GENERATION marks an innovative turning point in Araki's career..."
Film Comment - 03/01/1995
"...[Araki has] film's most authentic punk rock sensibility..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/27/1995
"...It has Araki's edge and energy, his terse mastery of the visual, his deadpan humor and despair, and his ability to inspire go-for-broke portrayals..."
Total Film - 05/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t seems utterly camp; an Andy Warhol road movie for the post punk, mid-grunge generation..."

Product Description:

In this way-over-the-top homage to blood-spattering road movies a trio of aimless, world-weary teenagers get their thrills torturing and killing a trail of cashiers and clerks before engaging in kinetic menages-a-trois. Available in rated and unrated versions.

Plot Synopsis:

Three aimless teenagers -- pampered, amoral Amy Blue, her naive boyfriend Jordan White, and hot-headed, mysterious hunk Xavier Red -- embark on a road trip after Xavier kills a store clerk. During their trek, the teens engage in outrageous, remorseless violent acts, and explore their sexuality. But as their journey progresses, it grows darker and increasingly nihilistic... finally climaxing in a moment of shock and horror.
