Araki's Nowhere on IFC On Demand

For those of you in the US, Gregg Araki's Nowhere, the conclusion to his Teen Apocalypse Trilogy which is still MIA on DVD, in airing for free on IFC's OnDemand channel. I don't know which cable providers offer this (I know mine does not offer their Festival Direct Program), but I thought it'd be of particular interest in that it's the first time I've ever gotten a chance to see the film in its original aspect ratio (strangely, The Doom Generation is still only available stateside in a sacreligious pan and scan transfer). Nowhere will be available until 27 May for those who are interested.

God I love this movie! And what is with the lack of DVD love for Araki?

I don't know. I e-mailed Strand some time ago, when they released a new-er version of Mysterious Skin just a few months after Tartan did, to see if they had plans to acquire all of his films, and they never responded. As far as I know New Line/Warner has Nowhere and isn't doing anything with it.

I almost wrote a fiery, angry letter to Lionsgate when they released a repackaged Doom Generation in August of '07 with not only the same fucking p&s transfer, but the same fucking disc from 1998. I don't have a whole lot of nice things to say about Lionsgate.
