Beyond The Black Rainbow
Directed by Panos Cosmatos
A woman must break free from a strange institution run by a creepy self-help guru in this trippy mash-up of sci-fi, body horror, and midnight movie whatsit. Part of a recent trend of films like BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO and AMER which take their inspiration from stylish '60s and '70s horror, BTBR owes a debt to David Cronenberg's STEREO, George Lucas' THX 1138 and Stanley Kubrick's 2001. But the film's got it's own unique style, veering from puzzling to petrifying in the blink of an eye. Love it or hate it - you're sure to have a strong opinion by the end.
