Nowhere (1997) Nowhere chronicles a day (and night) in the lives of a group of 20 or more alienated Los Angeles teenagers in their personal lives of despair, alienation, failing relationships and more. Centering on one 18-year-old named Dark, an alienated UCLA film student; his bisexual African-American girlfriend Mel; her purple-haired, acid-tongued lesbian girlfriend Lucifer; Dark's homosexual classmate Montgomery; and Montgomery's poetess friend Alyssa. Other characters include Dark's friend, a queer industrial rock star named Cowboy; his drug-addicted lover and band mate Bart; the local drug dealer Handjob and his live-in S&M girls Kris and Kozzy; the metal-mouthed, wise-cracking intellectual Dingbat; her older brother Duckey, the bulimic Egg; Alyssa's self-destructive twin brother Shad and his girlfriend Lilith; Mel's little brother Zero and his blond girlfriend Zoe, plus a Teen Idol so famous that no one needs to utter his name, a trio of Atari gang members, nattering Valley girls, scary drag queens, a pragmatic party, and a mysterious alien from outer space that only Dark sees.

More Movie Taglines:
  • "sexy, psychedelic, dementedly funny, with a sensational soundtrack... it's like clueless with nipple rings."
Movie Quote(s):
  • Dark: L.A. is like, nowhere. Everybody who lives here is lost.
  • Lucifer: I gotta burn off these calories fast, before I blow up. Let's go rollerblading or something. You wanna come along, Dark? Dark: I'd rather have my ball hairs burned off with an acetylene torch! Lucifer: Well, that can be arranged.
  • Lilith: Blood is cool.
  • Shad: I heard a story that last week down in Brentwood, a guy croaked and nobody knew he had died alone in his house. By the time they found him, his pet dog had eaten his dead face off. Lilith: Dogs eating people is cool.
  • Dark's Mom: How long where you in that shower abusing yourself? You masturbate too much, young man. If you keep this up, one day it's just going to wither up and fall off. Dark Smith: Shut-up shut-up shut-up shut-up!
Movie Trivia:
  • Although the movie is set in one day, the characters change their clothes several times. The only one who doesn't change his clothes during the day is Dark.
  • The words on Bart's bedroom walls/floor are the lyrics to "Lukewarm" by Babyland.
  • Rose McGowan replaced Shannen Doherty on "Charmed" (1998). They both have a short cameo together in this film.
  • Third part of Gregg Araki's Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy. The other two parts are The Doom Generation (1995) and Totally F***ed Up (1993).
  • SPOILER: The final scene involving Montgomery's transformation into a bug is suggestive of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis.
