If there's an undercurrent of impending cataclysm in today's culture, 'Kaboom' senses that feeling, seizes it in a surreal clinch and hurtles with it off a cliff.

Designed to have its own fun, filled to the brim with bangs of all kinds but mostly landing with a whimper.

What pop spectacle!

The film is Araki's most ambitious to date, with a quick pace, music that's hip and cool and a mood that alternates between playful and eccentric.

All that's truly strange here though is that Araki gets so few jolts or laughs from this hodge-podge of genres.

Araki deserves credit for maintaining his independent spirit. But "Kaboom" is short on impact.
March 24, 2011
With Kaboom, Araki takes a huge step backward from the maturity and restraint he demonstrated in 2004's Mysterious Skin, his best and most-assured film to date (and, tellingly, his only adaptation of someone else's material).

The fact that the characters spout snappy, profane dialogue while all this is, or isn't, going on around them is more "fun" than fun; Araki's like the too-drunk guy who won't go home when the party's over.

What's going on? Who cares?

Araki has been making movies for more than 20 years now, and his ideas haven't evolved all that much.
