Nowhere

Director: Gregg Araki


From the twisted, visionary mind of Gregg Araki comes Nowhere, his fourth feature. Since The Living End, Araki has assembled a remarkable string of films, establishing himself as one of the stalwarts of American independent cinema. Combining over-the-top visuals, wild music, and rapid-fire dialogue into cautionary tales of youthful angst and alienation which both horrify and dazzle, he has created a unique style which others have attempted, but failed, to imitate. Amazingly, the scope and intensity of his films have steadily increased, and now culminate in Nowhere, the grand finale of his self-styled Teen Apocalypse Trilogy.
Like a surreal, supersaturated Beverly Hills 90210 episode, Nowhere follows an interwoven network of libidinous teens as they experience doubt, insecurity and alien abduction. The web-like narrative charts the course of one day in the tragically comic life of Dark Smith, a striking, alienated 18-year old. The object of his affection, Mel, cares for him deeply but can’t commit to any one person or even gender.
Nowhere is more than a stylised foray into the nightmare world of adolescent high and lows. It is also an examination of the direction where a generation is heading. Nowhere is a sexy and wild ride, so buckle up, remain seated, and enjoy the ultimate fast trip to oblivion.
