Directed by Gregg Araki | 1993

With James Duval, Roko Belic, Susan Behshid

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

Araki followed up his New Queer Cinema powder keg The Living End with what he described as a "rag-tag story of fag-and-dyke teen underground…a kind of cross between avant-garde experimental cinema and a queer John Hughes flick." Framed by the alarming statistic that 30 percent of teenage suicides are gay, Totally F***ed Up, the first film in Araki’s Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy is an abrasive, outraged, and vibrant portrait of gay teens adrift in Los Angeles living under the specter of AIDS, gay bashing, and adolescent self discovery. Equal parts Godard and Warhol.
