Rent The Doom Generation on DVD

The Doom Generation

1995 Rated UR 1hr 23m

Carnage ensues when trash-mouthed, meth-freak Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) and her dim-bulb boyfriend, Jordan White (James Duval), save depraved drifter Xavier Red (Johnathon Schaech) from some skinheads. A clash with a convenience-store clerk leads to a killing, and the trio finds themselves on the run. Their hellish road trip spawns remorseless brutality; as the journey proceeds, it grows ever more nihilistic -- resulting in a shattering conclusion.

Frankly, this isn't the best-looking DVD out there. In defense of the poor souls who transferred this film, they did not have an easy job. The film is filled with color-saturated scenes (especially red), and then scenes with strobe effects.

Doom Generation is an independent film, so it lacks some of the techno bells and whistles we've come to appreciate from major studio releases. It is surround sound (not 5.1) and the mix is sometimes a little primitive sounding. With these considerations, the film cannot look better in any other medium. Laser and VHS would have lost control in the color-saturated scenes.
