2010 • United States • Directed by Gregg Araki
Winner of the first-ever Queer Palm at Cannes, inspired by a conversation he had with John Waters, Gregg Araki’s anarchic comedy is a return to the camp style of his early work. Smith arrives at college only to find it overrun with aliens, witches and stoner surfers. Charged with exposing a secret organisation’s plans to destroy the world, he finds his investigation thwarted by his girlfriend, his best friend’s demonic lover and his suntanned roommate. The apocalypse has never been so much fun!
