NC-17
Doom Generation is a 1995 film about three young people who become involved in a bizarre love triangle that leads to violent crime. Jordan White (James Duval) and Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) are seemingly happy teenage lovers. While driving around one day, they pick up a seemingly aimless drifter named Xavier "X" Red (Johnathon Schaech). The three stop at a convenience store later the same night, where X inadvertently kills the store's owner. Following that, the three go on the run together and quickly begin to get romantically involved. Jordan and X are initially competitive over Amy but eventually settle into an uneasy understanding. As they travel across the Midwest, the trio constantly gets into situations that end in violence. Eventually, both the FBI and a group of neo-Nazis begin to chase after them. Even as the three grow closer together, the reality that they will ultimately be torn apart becomes increasingly real.
