The Doom Generation

I pretty much have been meaning to see The Doom Generation since it came out in 1995. Finally was able to watch it, and it was totally not what I was expecting. In fact, I’m not sure what I was expecting. I always wonder how projects like this get greenlighted. Obviously, it was not a major studio but it’s great that some producer out there has a heart for subversive ideas. Also, wtf is with the comment “A savagely funny film” being the lead quote on the ads, I guess it was funny in a dark way, not funny ha ha. I guess whatever sells. Anyone have a rec for which other Gregg Araki films I should watch? I am already planning on watching Mysterious Skin.
