The Living End DVD

The Living End Remixed and Remastered
Available to buy on DVD from 26 January 2009


Very good gripping film well worth seeing Pink UK

A postmodern love story of l'amour fou, Gregg Araki’s seminal film The Living End has been remastered and remixed to HD quality for its long overdue release DVD on 26 January 2009. Using the latest technology to manipulate the sound, and completely reviltalising the colours, director Araki has created a superb 5.1 digital stereo presentation.

A road-movie heralding the New Queer Cinema movement of the early 1990s,
The Living End explores the sexual and fatally romantic consequences of gay male attraction in the 90s. Propelled by a hardcore industrial soundtrack, the story focuses on the dire relationship between a pair of young outcasts – Luke the rootless hustler, and Jon, and HIV-positive freelance writer. With literally nothing to lose, they set off into the desolate, quasi-surrealistic American Wasteland.

Maverick film director Gregg Araki’s previous credits include Mysterious Skin, Smiley Face, Splendor, Nowhere, The Doom Generation, Totally F****ed Up, The Long Weekend and Three Bewildered People in the Night.

Stridently powerful and highly moving, The Living End gives a vibrant voice to the speechless and disenfranchised, and is a classic with the Queer New Wave Genre.
