In a time when Hollywood largely skirted the topic of AIDS, Gregg Araki’s breakaway hit, The Living End, was one of the few independent features to boldly take it on. A hustler and a film critic, both gay and HIV+, set off on an anarchic road trip, wasting homophobes and hurtling toward certain doom with reckless abandon. As tender as it is hard-boiled, the stylish film gave voice to a growing population and turned the heads of audiences and critics.

Screenwriter/Cinematographer/Editor: Gregg Araki. Cast: Mike Dytri, Craig Gilmore, Mark Finch, Mary Woronov, Johanna Went.
