Critic Reviews of "The Doom Generation"Chicago ReaderJanuary 14, 2011
Striking to look at, though often offensively opportunistic, this mainly comes across as a throwaway shocker with energy to spare. There's not much thought in evidence though.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
A nihilistic comedy about a trio of alienated youngsters, pic is bold not only in its art design, but also in its narrative and tone, a mixture of satire and horror with heavy dosage of steamy sex and macabre violence.VarietyJune 20, 2006
Inspired by Godard's classic Band Apart, Araki's fifth feature is his most audacious and most technically accomplished film to date, reflecting the larger than usual budget and gained experience.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Imagine Natural Born Killers with a sense of humour.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Sledgehammer direction, heavy irony and the easiest imaginable targets hardly show talent off to good advantage.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
It's a savagely funny ride fueled by Araki's insight and blunt compassion.TV GuideJanuary 14, 2011
For the terminally hip and/or terminally adolescent.Lessons of DarknessDecember 20, 2005
Self-consciously strives for transgressive nihilism without ever recognizing the sheer absurdity of its every component.MovieholeMarch 11, 2005
A cult classic.....steamy hot, wicked funnyAbout.comJuly 14, 2003
Potentially clever, but ultimately the raw violence isn't creative and therefore is offensive.eFilmCritic.comJanuary 01, 2000
I'd step on a thumbtack before watching it again.Filmcritic.comJanuary 01, 2000
Hands-down one of the most horrid examples of filmmaking I've seen in ages.
