"Nowhere" Redux

In a tell-tale testament to the fact that Araki is clearly running out of ideas comes "Kaboom"-- a film clearly derivative of his previous works (?), especially "Nowhere". Only now that his former "boy", James Duval, is visibly and substantially too old to play an 18-year-old protagonist, he has to sub in a new generation to fit the challenging role of "hot, androgynously cute boy #2". However, as if to subtly admit he's serving up "Nowhere" 2.0, he even finds a part for Duval as "heavily aged R.A." However, unlike "Nowhere", "Kaboom" is like a film that doesn't really know what it wants to be; a commentary on modern life? An examination of sexual fluidity during the college years? A campy gay comedy? No...it turns out it's trying to be a science fiction/fantasy thriller with some of the worst CGI...which is inexcusable given it was filmed in 2010. But the reality is, it falls short of being ANY of those. But the absolute worst part about this mess would have to be the ending; it honestly felt as if Araki got "stuck" and became so exasperated with the script that he just decided to wrap it up in the most ludicrous and sloppy way possible. "Kaboom" is a drone-strike on American cinema, and leaves the viewer asking, "who green-lighted this operation?"

Dream-like gay apocalypse

I love this movie to death. It's replete with colorful imagery and shockful of witty dialogue and intriguing characters. It's campy, daring and borderline nonsensical. But somehow it all comes together in an apocalyptic vision of masonic cults, witches, gay sex, and the end of the world.

Gregg Araki is known for making strange movies and this is perhaps his strangest. But there's a certain warmth that transpires it all, a deep love for the characters, all of which feel a certain emptiness about life, a certain longing for something more meaningful and ultimate. This longing is fulfilled as the movie spirals into utter madness.

You gotta be in the right mood for this one and enjoy movies with a B-movie-esque feel. Watch KABOOM with an open mind. Watch it on a big screen. Turn up the volume. Cherish the weirdness.

Bizarre but Ultimately Boring

I found this film through Juno Temple who has almost always picked good roles in my opinion. Upon seeing that this shared a director with Mysterious Skin (2004) I was even more excited to watch this. In the end I was pretty disappointed in the film though it had its moments.

From the outset the film has somewhat of a dreamlike feel to it with all of the colors saturated to a point fitting of a fantasy sequence. The story is equally strange and seems to exist slightly outside of what is real. I felt that the film jumping around seemed to add to this (as well as descriptive names such as London speaking with a British accent and the few instances of supernatural abilities.) While it certainly wasn't totally incoherent it would jump from drama and the main character trying to find answers to a totally random sex scene that seems to come from nowhere and does nothing to advance the story.

By far the most disappointing and bizarre piece of the film is the ending. It makes an attempt at tying all of the different stories together but in doing so directly contradicts at least one character's story. It comes off so intensely far-fetched that I wondered if maybe the movie all along is about a schizophrenic individual just imagining his reality.

All in all it was pretty boring to watch with only a few dramatic, funny or visually interesting moments. I thought the sex scenes were okay and the mysterious parts were pretty good. It was just the erratic storyline and wacky ending that really ruined it for me.
