Smith (Thomas Dekker) is 18 years old, is in his first year in college,
and he's got some problems: He's openly gay but in love with his openly
straight surfer dude roommate Thor (Chris Zylka), he's constantly horny
even though he has sex on a more than regular basis with a few men and
even a girl, promiscuous London (Juno Temple) - oh, and he has this
recurring weird dream that seems to be the basis of some mystery, a dream
that also features two women he is only about to meet, Lorelei (Roxane
Mesquida), the girlfriend of her best friend Stella (Haley Bennett),
who'll eventually turn out to be a witch, and the red haired girl (Nicole
LaLiberte), whose murder at the hands of three men in anmimal masks he
will eventually witness.
Witnessing the murder (high on drugs, so he's
not quite sure it wasn't an illusion) opens a whole new chapter in Smith's
life, because now he and Stella are desperately trying to find out what
had actually happened, and how it all ties in with his dream. And what
does it have to do with Smith's presumed dead father? And his mother
(Kelly Lynch)? And a secret society called The New Order?
Smith finds himself pursued by the men in animal masks, and he finds the
red-haired girl, who turns out to be the dead girl's twin sister, and who
tells him sis has been abducted by men in animal masks at an early age,
and since been an agent of the order turned double agent.
clues though come from Smith's female fuckfriend London, who tells him
Smith's dad is actually the order's leader and he's preparing for
doomsday. Smith though is the chosen one who will lead the new world after
nuclear destruction, and she was sent to watch over him but has turned
against her people when she fell in love with him. She also turns out to
be his own half-sister.
The whole thing ends with Smith, London and mom
being kidnapped by three men in animal masks, which turn out to be Thor
and two of Smith's fuckbuddies, Stella racing to the rescue, a carcrash
and the total destruction of earth ...
A cool film that
carelessly and light-footedly mixes teen comedy, coming of age drama,
murder mystery, science fiction of the conspiracy theory variety and
whatnot to a weird blend with more than a few nods to David Lynch ... and
thast's exactly where the film falls a tad short: While Lynch always knows
how to put his labyrinthine narratives in a fascinating aesthetic
framework, director Gregg Araki flat-out fails to put his story into a
proper visual context, pretty much fails to show any kind of directorial
inventiveness or brilliance at all. Now this doesn't sink the movie, it's
still a rather cool and entertaining flick, but far from the masterpiece
it could have been had more care been put in the film's actual direction.
