Cannes 2010: Three Clips From Greg Araki's KABOOM
Continuing the Cannes tradition of perplexing choices in the midnight program, Greg Araki's Kaboom drew sharply divided opinions among audiences. Some loved it. Some hated it. Some just kind of shrugged. But now we've got three clips - the middle of which is very definitely not work safe - for you to get a taste for yourself. Here's how sales agents The Wild Bunch describe it:
Smith's everyday life in the dorms - hanging out with his arty, sarcastic best friend Stella, hooking up with a beautiful free spirit named London, lusting for his gorgeous but dim surfer roommate Thor - all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night.
Tripping on some hallucinogenic cookies he ate at a party, Smith is convinced he's witnessed the gruesome murder of an enigmatic Red Haired Girl who has been haunting his dreams. What he discovers as he tries to find out the truth leads him deeper and deeper into a mystery that will forever change not only the course of his young life but the destiny of the entire world.
