This movie is a "trip" in every sense of the word - but if you are familiar with Gregg Araki, you should know what you're getting yourself into.

Sharply written and sexy comedy from Greg Araki which takes a lot on board but scores on all levels.

Kaboom may be a mess, but its one that you can never take you're eyes off. It's deliciously entertaining, fast, and wholly original. Some may find it to be a …
