New In The USA: Kaboom
One of the best things audiences will get out of Gregg Araki's latest joint, Kaboom, is some well thought out and thorough advice on cunnilingus from rising star Juno Temple. Well, that and its very pretty cast parading around in holier-than-thou-coolness.
Otherwise, the flat, though colourful, look of the film, its refusal to take anything too serious, or spend too much effort on story or character, leave the film fitfully entertaining but rather stuck in the middle of the directors C.V. It is half-way between the stoner classic Smiley Face, and his more narcissistic-hubris laden debut The Doom Generation. I was a bit reticent to fully embrace this film at first, but it has really grown on me in the time since, give it a whirl with an open mind and throw all seriousness out the window.
