Synopsis: Black-and-white film stills highlight the complete screenplays for The Living End, about life in the AIDS era, and Totally F***ed Up, about six friends struggling with issues of identity and sexuality in the 1990s. 15,000 first printing.

From Booklist: Araki's a sharp-witted film writer-director-cinematographer-editor whose ultra-low-budget Living End was an art-house and film festival smash. Visually, he's 1960s Jean-Luc Godard reborn a young gay American--jump-cuts, intertitles, blackouts, handheld cameras, eccentric points of view, sexy young actors, and all. As far as drama goes, he's pretty all-American--a romanticizing quasirealist whose characters, unlike Godard's, don't spout Marxism. Not that Araki's apolitical; he lip-serves the gay radical line but mostly entertains and engages sympathy for his characters. Sort of a gay Thelma and Louise, The Living End is terrifically raffish and funny, also surefire affecting because its HIV-positive heroes are only twenty-something. Soon-to-be-released, Totally F***ed Up is like a John Hughes teenaged-buddy film (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) graduated, gone to seed, and playing out in a nightmare L.A. {...}a la Bladerunner. On paper, its scenes in the lives of four young gays and two rather ancillary lesbians are more somber than but as affecting as those in End. Thanks to lots of jaded humor in the scenic and actors' directions, Araki's scripts are, mirabile dictu, magnetically readable. Ray Olson
