March 24th, 2011   Kaboom No Comments

Kaboom is to be featured in the line-up at this year’s BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival, on Thursday 31st March.For those of you who haven’t seen the film yet, it is a great chance before its general October release.

Those acquainted with Gregg Araki’s Teen Apocalypse Trilogy (Totally F***ed Up, The Doom Generation and Nowhere) will know that he has a knack for making the Armageddon look like the best party on earth. So get ready to celebrate, as Araki has launched headlong back into that trippy world of adolescent annihilation, with a new film guaranteed to delight fans and convert the uninitiated. Art student Smith (Thomas Dekker) is pretty much your regular horny teenager, hanging around the dorms and lusting after his buff surfer roommate Thor (Chris Zylka). That is until he eats some hallucinogenic cookies, witnesses the murder of a mysterious red-haired girl and finds himself embroiled in a cataclysmic mystery that could signal the end of the world. Alongside his feisty best friend Stella (Haley Bennett) and free spirited party girl London (Juno Temple), Smith ends up in a race against time to uncover the truth and save mankind. In Araki’s assured hands, youthful existentialism has never seemed like more fun, and Kaboom is a sumptuous pop art confection that cannot fail to make you nostalgic for the chaos and confusion of adolescence. The sexual fluidity and playful sense of foreboding that made Araki a cause célèbre of New Queer Cinema are as apparent as ever, as are his trademark gross-out gags and wonderfully crude one-liners. But while there is a reassuring air of familiarity as the libidinous cast navigate their way through this queer dystopia, it still manages to feel quite like nothing you have ever seen before. As the title would suggest, Kaboom is an absolute blast.
