Prefer the Present
"No matter: with words, the Other reappears."
"Qui est là? Qui est là?"
"Ché Coco, Ché Coco."

People who were also there that I saw: Brady Corbet
People who were also there that I didn’t see: Fran Drescher, John Cameron Mitchell
A mix of Gregg Araki’s youthful sense of cinema (The Doom Generation and Nowhere) and his technical mastery of the medium (Mysterious Skin), not to mention the gonzo humor of his most recent offering (Smiley Face), Kaboom is one of the best times I’ve had at the movies in months - a sex crazed teen dream that will leave you asking “what the fuck did I just watch?” but shortly thereafter screaming for more. I want to see it again already! Highly recommended.
Kaboom will be playing at the IFC Center starting tomorrow (January 28th). Support independent filmmaking or forever suffer the consequences!
seeing this on the 27th, super-psyched.
