Storyline

Life really sucks for a group of gay and lesbian teenagers living in Los Angeles. Their parents kicked them out, they're broke and bored, their lovers cheat on them, they're harassed by gay-bashers. If things are going to be this way, maybe suicide isn't a bad idea; at least not in the mind of Andy, our major protagonist, who gives the film its title by describing himself as "totally fucked up."

Pure Garbage
23 July 2001 | by neionSee all my reviews

I've seen all of Gregg Araki's Films except the ones before "The Living End" and I thought all of them were fantastic. But not this one, it is a peice of garbage. First of all, this film gives no incite whatsoever on what it is like to be a gay teen. It never delves deep into the characters to show how they feel, and in the end we are left wondering what the hell happened. Ok so I saw the film about two years ago, so I can't comment fresh after seeing it. I have never been so aware of a film being shot on film as I was with this one. Araki uses WAY too many close-ups (which work for his other films) but in this one all there seems to be is CLOSE-UPS, CLOSE-UPS, CLOSE-UPS! It drove me insane. This probably would have worked if ANY of the characters were interesting in the slightest, but instead we are treated to LONG close-up pseudo documentary like shots of boring dialogue delivered by boring actors. I am so angry that I spent 100 dollars to import two copies of this for me and my friend, who is also a big Araki fan and couldn't even finish watching this piece of crap. Final Verdict, you will most likely not enjoy this film even if you are a big Araki fan. watch his other movies instead (except for Splendor ech!)
