Compared to most Araki films, Kaboom is a pretty lightweight, but entertaining film. I have really become a Thomas Deller and Chris Zylka fan. They gave great performances.

After watching ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ (which was pretty good) and ‘Smiley Face’ (which was pretty lame), I was quite eager to check the feature that Gregg Araki did direct between these 2 movies. Well, I really liked the way it started and the damned thing had seriously some potential. Indeed, it was one of the best depictions of college life I have seen in a very long time.

Description: Indie veteran Gregg Araki returns to the spotlight with KABOOM, a hyper-stylized Twin Peaks for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super-hot young cast. The film is a wild, sex-drenched, comical thriller that tells the story of Smith, an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles upon a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town. KABOOM will make its US premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival and is writer/director Araki's eighth film there since his breakthrough The Living End, including The Doom Generation to his masterpiece Mysterious Skin. The film stars Thomas ... (more)

Well, I really liked the way it started and the damned thing had seriously some potential. Indeed, it was one of the best depictions of college life I have seen in a very long time. Furthermore, I loved Araki’s approach towards sexuality which was basically that almost no one is actually totally gay or hetero. Eventually, even though the characters were really promiscuous, it was never displayed as something really depraved or depressing like in ‘The Rules of Attraction’ for example and this approach was also really refreshing.

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: May (17 movies items)

"May 2 "Smith, college is just an intermission between high school and the rest of your life. It's four years of having sex, making stupid mistakes, and experiencing stuff. It's a pit stop, not the second coming of the Messiah." Gregg Araki sure is an interesting director, huh? He's one of those kinds of directors where everything I've seen from him so far was something I had completely different opinions on. I couldn't stand Smiley Face, I mostly hated The Doom Generation, but had a couple a"
