Movie Info

Described by director Gregg Araki as "A Beverly Hills 90210 episode on acid" (with no suggestions of what it might be cut with), Nowhere is a companion piece with Araki's previous meditations on youth gone wild in the 1990s, Totally F***ed Up and The Doom Generation -- Araki's self-described "teen apocalypse trilogy." Nowhere follows 18-year-old Dark Smith (James Duval) as he goes through a fairly typical day in Los Angeles. Dark needs, but rarely gets, emotional support from his girlfriend Mel

Spinning his wheels, Araki has made yet another film about disaffected youth, and while thematically, Nohere has nothing new to offer, there are some minor visual rewards; film's title also describes Araki's lack of direction.

Audience Reviews for Nowhere

Stick with this film, it has probably the best ending in the history of cinema! (without it, it would be a one and a half star film!)

Shallow L.A. teenagers take drugs and have kinky sex all day in preparation for the party of the year, while a rubber alien reptile occasionally stalks and abducts them. Mostly unfunny satire that tries to cover up its lack of ideas and humor with cheap irony and dimestore surrealism; probably should have been titled BILL & TED'S HOMOEROTIC HALLUCINATION.

no plot, no climax or any of that stuff. just a simple, pleasant look at teenagers in suburbia. dont think. just watch.

A well-orchestrated mess that revolves entirely around style. Araki's use of imagery and music is masterful. The script doesn't appear to communicate anything of much consequence, but the film is so absorbing and entertaining that it doesn't really matter.
