Fresh: A cult classic.....steamy hot, wicked funny

- Clint Morris, Moviehole, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: The violence becomes commonplace. The crudities never end. But there are hip benefits for staying to watch.

Pretty sure this was written by a 9 year old who learned the f word. It makes no sense, and they constatnly insult each other using phrases I've not heard since middle school. It gets 1.5 stars for being strange and having killing and a few short blissful moments of Rose McGowan. Otherwise I wanted strangle every character in it.

This movie has a consistent and unique tone, which is why I wasn't surprised this was an Araki film. Araki is fantastic with tone, and in this film, he creates an alternate electro junkie 90s fever-dream where the world is always on the edge of ending and everything is distorted into symbols and pop art to convey the indescribable desperation and fear the characters think rests naturally within their souls. The soundtrack is near constant, and is as much an important character as the three people this film focuses on. The story is an odd love triangle set in post modern crazy land, with the repeated incidents of sudden deadly violence and cases of unforgivable mistaken identity pushing the plot from one sex scene to another. This film pulls into the world of these three characters so fully. Rose McGowan creates the paradigm of the annoying junkie girl from the 90s and it plays well off the sensitive stoner and daring bad boy cutouts of characters. Definitely a film for people who feel like thinking about what they are watching, as much of the detail is in symbolic 90s art creations and the main plot points reference not reality, but B movies. Watching this movie is like falling into an abyss of the 1990s and its complacent pessimism. The film just leaves one feeling unsettled and in this way perfectly captures its era and what its characters are feeling and conveys that to the audience. Fantastic ending, a real blinder that works so well. Cool cameos: Parker Posey and Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction "Most Fucked Up" highlight: head still talking, the conclusion

Cheesy, sleezy and gory. Rose McGowan still manages to badly act, but James Duval is really endearing somehow. It's worth the watch..but don't get too invested.
