Totally F***ed Up
USA, 1993, 78 minutes, SD
Totally F***ed Up Synopsis


From cinema’s maestro of indie queer pop cinema, welcome to Gregg Araki’s messed-up world, a concrete jungle teeming with teenage lust, abundant drugs and all-out infidelity. Before Kaboom, Mysterious Skin and The Living End, there was TOTALLY F***ED UP.


A film for anyone who has grown up gay and lived through the pain of alienation, this self-consciously cool story of the gay teen underground is New Queer Cinema at its edgiest – a humorous yet moving study of an unwanted generation.


Starring James Duval (Donnie Darko), and featuring music from Wolfgang Press, Ministry, Ride, Pale Saints and The Jesus and Mary Chain.




"Totally f***ing brilliant" - Gay Times


"A candid, knowing, often funny look at gay-teen hell" - The Advocate


"Subtelty is something of which Gregg Araki will never be accused" - Vanity Fair


"Punker than John Waters, but still in his debt, compromise isn't on Araki's agenda" - Little White Lies

If the tagline "gay teen angst" sounds appealing then this could be your new favourite film. A queer cinema classic for sure, it still holds up well today. Gregg Araki brings the laughs, the feels and the ridiculous in equal spades and the result is a memorable take of teen culture and feelings filled with complicated and memorable characters. It's fairly accessible but comes most recommended for those with an interest in Queer Cinema.
