Radiohead in Nowhere

Recommended Posts

Gregg Araki was in his 30s in 1997. Also this movie is clearly about young adults even though it is often described as about teens. The main characters are supposed to be over 18, and they're played by blatantly legal actors, and their lifestyle appears to be college students rather than high school. Also it's more of a parody of teen sex romps (which were often directed by elderly guys) than a teen sex romp. The other movies he did in his early career are about 20somethings around his own age when he made the films. I have no idea what he does now, but have you ever seen the Ingenue video? Straight white pervert in his 50s making daddy dance videos with 20something Japanese dancer who is supposed to represent his real life 20something Italian gf. Watch Utada Hikaru's tour documentary on Netflix and you can see the same dancer, Fukiko Takase, in a much more inspiring form.
