Once again juno temples, indecent, filthy, hot, raunchy, performance was breathtaking. Her topless scenes in this was stunning. She defiantly is a temptress, and a siren to both male and females. If you like erotic performances just but a juno temple dvd.
I suspect Araki is looking for light hearted fun, with a primary emphasis on humor. His actors are extremely attractive, and he has certainly upped their sexuality. The erotic attractions and homo/hetro sexuality exudes throughout the film, with an almost ambivalent approach to desire, lust and attraction. Sex is sex, and one should use such both for fun and in the manipulation of others (especially if you are attractive enough to do so).
The homoerotic undercurrent between many of the characters is typical of Araki, whereas his direction and design is significantly different. This is perhaps where I have my first real criticism of "Kaboom" in that one is always looking for something new and fresh, but not at the expense of the artist himself. Ultimately, one looses the very nature of Araki on this film, and it it were not for the information provided, one would not know that this is one of his movies. His political nature, social commentary and gritty creativity are "Nowhere" to be seen (excuse the pun on one of his movies), and it as almost as if Araki has lost his sense of self in this movie.
If you are looking for Araki in "Kaboom" I am sure you will be disappointed, whereas if you are looking for something which is mindless, frivolous and sexy fun, then I suspect you will like this movie a great deal. Eye candy aside, it had its moments, and whilst not the director I have come to respect and love, it was not a bad movie within itself.
But it all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night, when a reoccurring dream becomes a bleak reality, and he starts having visions of a dystopian nature.
Araki movies are an acquired taste, you either get them and appreciate their beauty, or you get on the bandwagon of people who cannot stomach certain things and dismiss it as rubbish.
Out of all the Araki movies, this has to be his most accessible, and it's very intriguing from beginning to end. The opening shot is very reminiscent of something that David Lynch would do, and the film does have a very Mulholland Drive feel about it.
As his films do, it gets very bonkers toward the end, and you do have to suspend belief come the very end, but the film has such a cool laid back lizard feel to it, that you cannot help but get sucked in to his vision.
Not all will appreciate his work, but I really enjoyed this.
