Mod F... Explosion feels exactly like an old Greg Araaki film but is even darker and more bizarre than anything he ever came up with. If you're familiar with "The Doom Generation" or "Nowhere", you'll totally get what this film is about: Teenage angst, drugs, sex, music, violence, and bizarre names/clothes/locations. The entire film is washed over with darkness, and though there isn't much plot to speak of, the film is compelling from beginning to end because of its clever use of setting and its undeniable energy. The film is only 67 minutes, so it never even starts to get boring. A very strange and funny movie from beginning to end with probably a $0 budget. Great.
