  • USC film school grad Gregg Araki made "The Living End" on a budget of $20,000, part of which was an American Film Institute grant and part of which was donated by the producer's mother. It was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival and New York's New Films/New Directors series. Chris Munch, director of "The Hours and Times" did the lighting. "The Living End" is part of the new wave of "queer" filmmaking that swept the independent film scene in the 1990s and includes such films as Todd Haynes "Poison" and Tom Kalin's "Swoon." Rated BBFC 18 by the British Board of Film Classification. Partially funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Araki's movie is almost playfully picaresque....Immediate, desperate and intentionally disturbing..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...Dark humor doesn't get much darker than THE LIVING END....It has the power of honesty and originality, as well as the weight of legitimate frustration. Miraculously, it also has a buoyant, mischievous spirit..."
    New York Times

    "...Savagely comic, deeply romantic....[A] provocative, harrowing yet ironically exhilarating film..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[T]he petulance feels fresher than ever..."
    Film Comment

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Peppered with cult performers such as Warhol darling Mary Woronov and filmmaker Paul Bartel, the picaresque adventure is rife with non sequiturs..."

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's real feeling here...the core relationship generates equal parts heat and heart."
