Beyond the Black Rainbow DVD Review

Synopsis: Held captive in a specialized medical facility, a young woman with unique abilities seeks a chance to escape her obsessed captor.

Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of the year 1983, Beyond the Black Rainbow is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. From the producer of Machotaildrop, Rainbow is the outlandish feature film debut of writer and director Panos Cosmatos. Featuring a hypnotic analog synthesizer score by Jeremy Schmidt of Sinoia Caves and Black Mountain, Rainbow is a film experience for the senses.

Review: I was really blown away by Beyond the Black Rainbow.  I haven't seen a film this avant garde since A Clockwork Orange and Brazil!  In a very 70s and early 80s Kubrickian manner this film takes us on a trippy ride through science and the subconscious...its absolutely stunning visually and conceptually.  What a treat to see a film in this style after so many years.  We definately recommend.

Interest Range: Drama
