Description: Billed as a heterosexual movie by Gregg Araki, The Doom Generation is the director's self-styled bad-taste teen film. Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) is an obnoxious teenage speed freak and her boyfriend Jordan White (James Duval) is a passive, slow-witted poseur who won't have sex with her because he's terrified of AIDS (even though they both claim to be virgins). One day, they run across Xavier Red (Johnathon Schaech), a charming but enigmatic drifter who has a bad habit of killing people. Joining the young couple on a seemingly endless road trip, Xavier (or X,as the verbally challenged Jordan insists on calling him), proves a threatening and repulsive yet strangely alluring companion whose very presence raises issues of loyalty and sexual identity. The Doom Generation is dotted with a variety of eccentric cameo appearances, including comic Margaret Cho, actress Parker Posey, musician Perry Farrell, Hollywood Madame Heidi Fleiss, and onetime Brady Bunch star Christopher Knight. This is the middle installment in Araki's teen apocalypse trilogy, which also includes 1993's Totally F***ed Up and 1997's Nowhere.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
