The Doom Generation
Reviewed by: James BenefieldRead James Benefield's film review of The Doom Generation
There are only two special features, but they're of decent quality – there's a 25-minute interview with Araki and a commentary which features Araki and a few of the film's stars.
The interview is surprisingly honest. Araki recounts the movie's troubled filming (from an earthquake to his difficult first experiences working with a full film crew) and production process and how the movie, to some extent, formed the basis of everything he has done since. He's pretty positive about the outcome and seems genuinely proud of the final movie.
The commentary does fade in and out at points, but is generally worth a listen. Overall, it's just a lot of fun and really benefits from having everyone - the director and actors James Duval, Johnathon Schaech and Rose McGowan in the room together. The actors haven't seen the film for a while and there's a lot of laughter and reminiscing. There's no major insights, but there are a lot of anecdotes about onset experiences and what followed with the film's release.Reviewed on: 26 Mar 2012
