    Some amazing visuals and great usages of style. The story was definitely a set-back however, and it frequently suffered in the few scenes that were more dialog based. I'd also agree with others that the ending was an extreme let-down. 7 years 1 month ago

    Amazing first hour and a half. Unbelievably lame ending. Seriously? That's your final confrontation? I wasn't asking for some insane Dark City style psychic battle but.....SERIOUSLY??? 6 years 1 month ago

    Beyond the Black Rainbow is a trippy, artsy film about a telepathic girl trying to escape a futuristic commune, and at least as much about her captor... or is that really what it's about? More atmosphere than story, I sometimes felt like the fact the female lead was sedated throughout was a cruel joke about what the film was doing to its audience. This one's on a very slow burn, folks. Always interesting to look at (and good sound design too), but otherwise slim. Now, the twist is that it takes place in 1983, well away from the outside world, and the film at least partly wants to pull a Tarantino (who has never done a sci-fi film) and make something that could have come out of that era, though I dare say it feels more like a product of the 70s. Maybe that's why it goes into slasher territory at some point. Regardless, I can't decide if its anti-climax is meant to be cheeky or what. Is the film, in fact, complete masturbation we've been tricked into watching? 4 years 2 months ago
