produced without even a shoestring budget

It's no coincidence that an early scene in Gregg Araki's no-budget drama is set beneath a conspicuous, neon-lit lottery billboard. The fledgling writer director redefined the concept of independent filmmaking by finishing his debut feature at a total cost of only $5,000. The title is almost comically precise: each of Araki's three characters is bored, restless, lonely, and more than a little confused, and the grittiness of the underlit photography (filmed entirely after-hours) lends a claustrophobic pall to the already self-absorbed gloominess of the scenario, a relatively conventional coming-out drama with a difference. The tension of attraction between Mark (who is gay) and Craig (who isn't) is complicated by the affection both share with Alicia. Araki handles each relationship with surprising care, although his script leans hard on existential art school angst, making the characters sound too whiny and petulant at times. It doesn't take long to become acclimated to the poor (post-dubbed) sound and natural (dark) lighting, but the effort needs to be put into perspective: for the average cost in 1987 of a typical Hollywood blockbuster, Araki could have made...yes: 10,000 feature-length films!
