Doom genertaion by Greg Araki is One of many extreme depictions and metaphors which not only disturb the viewer, but shock even the most de-sensitised of cult movie fans. It efortlessly portays American society as a monster of extreme proportions that will chew up and spit out anything that it sees as unholy in its society, It takes a violent rampage through the rotten underbelly of of the so called land of oppertunity.The protagonists in this film are Amy and jordon,a deliberatley and satirically archetypal drop out couple that seem innocent in contrast to the bigotry and hatred that thrusts itself upon them from the word go. Much has been made of this films alleged taciness and unrealistic feel, however this is all part of greg araki`s style as he attempts to depict how extreme and absurd American society has become.
This film not only drips sarcasm and engages in the type of dialouge and youth culture that can`t be found in any book, but creates a previously unattainable link between sex,religion and violence which later in the movie becomes perversely apparent as the film progresses.
And if the first 70 minutes of this film isn`t enough of a diconnected head-trip,then the last section will absolutley make you wish you`d stuck with the disney movie.
This film not only crosses the line of sexual and moral taboos which most mainstream fimls cower away from, but also tears up the rule book and throws it in our faces. The dark vitriol will take you over and a wave of realization will wash away inhibitions you may have. If you want a film that burns down little house on the prarie and massacres the waltons, then this movie will fit your evil tastes like a glove.
