Beyond The Black Rainbow

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.

The plot is very simple. You're going to want to watch this for the atmosphere, sound, and cinematography. If you have any distractions, or are not really in the mood to zone into this one, I would give it a pass. That being said, I certainly enjoyed this film.

not for everyone... definitely an homage to retro near-future scifi, with a good dose of psychedelia filtered through an opiate lens.

All the drugs in the world can't save this movie.
