One part arthouse and one part schlock, the films of Jon Moritugu are all parts entertaining. MOD FUCK EXPLOSION, his third independent feature (following My Degeneration and Hippy Porn) is a surreal ode to teen angst, West Side Story meets Quadrophenia on cheap drugs and an even cheaper budget. Longtime Moritsugu muse Amy Davis stars as London, a sullen emo girl with a crush on a juvenile delinquent named M16. The couple’s romance is soon interrupted by a turf war between the mods and a gang of Asian-American bikers. This sleazy, out of sync, 16mm opus, set to a punk rock soundtrack, is a classic of mid-90s underground filmmaking that anyone with taste won’t want to miss!
