That's Cool, That's Trash.
25 June 2001 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

Man, I love trash! Serve me up Russ Meyer, Roger Corman, Ed Wood, Psych-Out, Rock'n'Roll High School or Angel, Angel, Down We Go and I'm a happy camper. But it's not so easy to make successful SELF CONSCIOUS trash. Troma try it and rarely succeed. The Chiodo brothers pulled it off with Killer Klowns from Outer Space, but Gregg Araki not only succeeds with Nowhere but takes it to the next level. Nowhere is the 90s Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls and then some. I can't even begin to tell you how cool this movie is! Look at the sensational cast which includes the debut of Mena Suvari, a couple of Bradys and best of all the wonderful find of Sarah Lassez. Add a spot on soundtrack of Sonic Youth, Elastica, JAMC, Portishead and Stacey Q(!) Plus Gibby from the Butthole Surfers, John Ritter playing a televangelist, an alien with a zap gun and Throbbing Gristle jokes! What more can you wish for?

The future is NOW, and Nowhere is THE place to be.
