DVD: Kaboom, Artifical Eye (For rental & retail)

Part teen sex comedy, part sci-fi conspiracy thriller, Gregg Araki's intoxicating new film satirises youthful self-obsession with deep affection and dizzying energy.

But visitors looking for waist-deep water where they can practice tricky dance manoeuvres will almost certainly be out of luck: the lake where Patrick Swayze romanced Jennifer Grey has almost disappeared.
