September 15th, 2010   Kaboom, Publicity No Comments

There is praise for Thomas and co-star Juno Temple in an otherwise less than favorable review for Kaboom. Read the full article, about the Toronto Film Festival Lineup, here.

Greg Araki’s great 2006 drama “Mysterious Skin” looks more and more like an anomaly in a lightweight career. His latest, “Kaboom,” is a return to his mid-’90s period of “Doom Generation” and “Nowhere”—raunchy nihilistic comedies with sassy dialogue, pansexual couplings and deliberately absurd plot twists.

In this one, an 18-year-old college student (Thomas Dekker) and his best friend (Haley Bennett) sleep around, go to parties and investigate his encounter with a mysterious band of killers who wear animal masks.

This kind of stuff is frothy, occasionally fun and always meaningless, but Araki clearly finds it a cinematic comfort zone. “Kaboom” is slightly better made and acted than the earlier efforts—Dekker and Juno Temple are the cast standouts—but we now know that Araki can do better. It’s disappointing to not see him try.

Good news for Thomas at least, since his name is cropping up everywhere with press for this movie. Personally, I still can’t wait to see Kaboom. Most of the reviews about the excellent My Sister’s Keeper picked out Thomas and Sofia as the real stars and slated the film itself – when actually, it was good all around and they just happened to steal the show!
