Mod F*** Explosion
From the fevered mind of Jon Moritsugu (director of "Scumrock," "Fame Whore," "Terminal USA") comes the punkoid masterwork "Mod F*** Explosion." Winner of "Best Feature" Award at the New York Underground Film Festival, this is a relentless cinematic onslaught of blonde teenage posturing, Japanese biker freak-outs, backstabbing mods, pretty poseurs, petty crimes, and a soundtrack featuring the unspoiled tuneage of Unrest, American Soul Spiders, Karyo Tengoku and more!
"Mod" demands to be seen with its flash-and-trash attitude... all the ingredients of good revolutionary cinema. -- New York Post, April 20, 1996
A dynamic punk odyssey of a pair of innocent teens... Moritsugu unleashes a barrage of powerful images. -- Los Angeles Times, October 10, 1994
Moritsugu hit some weird epiphany during the making of this film...you'll start remembering the lines and using them. -- Giant Robot, summer 2004
a wickedly self-conscious send-up of teen angst. -- LA Weekly, May 26-June 1, 1995
brilliant retelling of West Side Story... would put John Water's early films to shame... about as retarded as it gets. -- Think Again (Prague), November 2004
