Made in 1993
Araki's first feature length film - followed on by Doom Generation.
Characters - Luke, Jon, Doris.
Gay cinema. AIDS. Roadtrip. Sex. Violence. Anarchic. Constant PHONE ringing.
Funny&shocking. Postmodern - old themes (James Dean. Andy Warhol. Old cinema (psycho))
Luke - anarchic. 90's James Dean.
Jon - Reserved but self absorbed. Just found out he has caught HIV.
Doris - Faghag. Overbearing *mother* figure. More concerned about Jon than her own relationship.
