Totally Fucked Up (1993) dir. Gregg Araki
We take yet another journey into the world of Gregg Araki for his first installment of the Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy, Totally Fucked Up (1993).
Told in 15 celluloid fragments examining gay alienated youth of LA in the 90s.
I was eager to hear Jai’s first time thoughts as a newcomer to his early work and I give my review as a longtime Araki lover. We discuss how times have changed in both the good and bad ways. It’s such an important film almost 30 years later with the language of the West Coast and the birth of a new genre.
