Restored Director’s Cut of The Doom Generation Screens in Denver for First Time in 28 Years

1 min read


“Don’t you think sex is totally strange?” Jordan White (James Duvall) dreamily asks Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) while they lie smoking in bed during Gregg Araki’s The Doom Generation.

“I think maybe it’s more powerful than we’d like it to be,” she replies thoughtfully, biting her lip.

For Jordan and Amy, hooking up becomes a highway to both heaven and hell in this incendiary classic of New Queer Cinema from 1995, which starts a week-long revival run at the Sie FilmCenter today, April 21.

Sie artistic director Keith Garcia saw the film during its brief original release. “[I was a] freshman in college, and like all the ‘adult’ movies at the Mayan, I’m sure I snuck in,” he remembers. “I was already a fan of Araki with The Living End and wanted to see how he would do a ‘heterosexual’ movie.”
