Araki on set

Gregg Araki, writer/director of cutting-edge films like Mysterious Skin and the Doom Generation, discusses his newest sexually charged comedy/adventure, Kaboom. As he describes it to Out-FM, "Kaboom is a sort of bisexual Twin Peaks set in college." Starring Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Heroes), it premiered at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the first ever Queer Palm Award for its contribution to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues. In the interview, Araki discusses his personal take on sexual identity, deleted subplots in Kaboom, and why he doesn't like going to gay bars any more.
