The Doom Generation, restored in 4K with scenes edited for it’s theatrical release in 1995, this version reflects the director’s cut, intended by Araki. The film has been completely re-timed and re-edited for today’s technological standards. The sound is remastered to compliment today’s new audio standards in a new 5.1 mix.
Headed home after a wild night at a Los Angeles club, young lovers Jordan White (James Duval) and Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) pick up a dangerously handsome drifter named Xavier Red (Johnathon Schaech). Jordan doesn’t see a problem with offering Xavier a quick ride, but his acid-tongued girlfriend thinks he’s a creep. When Xavier inadvertently kills a convenience store clerk, they are forced to go on the run, traversing a bizarre and ultra-violent America. Somehow, every random thug, drive-thru operator, and neo-Nazi they encounter seem to recognize Amy as a past fling or alter ego, adding to the already explosive sexual tension brimming among the renegade trio.
