5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-dropping audio-visual film experience! 4 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Weeks ago I was wise enough to buy this film, until a few hours ago I was stupid enough to leave it on a shelf unopened, having just come down from the cinematic high of watching it I'll try to give it a coherent review which is easier said than done.

To exlain this gem in terms of linear structure alone is missing the essence of the experience but that's what I'll start with, the plot involves an experimental institute designed in the 60's to achieve great breakthrough's in self-understanding and inner-peace, cut to present day (a futuristic version of the 80's) and something has gone wrong, the institute is run by a quirky man seeming eccentric and perhaps not all there, the founder rots alone in a room pumping himself full off god knows what whilst watching idealist nature shows that no doubt let him see something closer to his original intentions than what he's created. A young girl, a telepath, is kept imprisoned as part of some experiment that is implied to be of some great importance, the man studying her seems obsessed with her and the plot focuses on the past of these two and the inevitable confrontation between captive and captor, to say any more would be pointless as the plot is quite loose and open to interpretation at times, its more a surreal audio-visual experience than the standard A-Z plot driven title and will therfore be quite offputting to many mainstream film-goers or film buffs who haven't went too far outside of the standard fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love-letter to 80s SF cinema 20 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Approach this looking for plot, three acts, a script that makes sense, conventional acting or anything resembling reality and you will be profoundly disappointed. However if you love vintage SF like The Groundstar Conspiracy, Cronenberg, Fulci`s zombie music soundtracks, The Andromeda Strain, Phantasm and just a general WTF? quality to your movie-viewing you will ADORE this tone-poem to all that cool stuff. Don`t try and force a narrative onto what unfolds before your eyes, just let the film transport you back to those youthful, heady days when you could while away an entire afternoon just gazing at the box-cover artwork in your local video-rental store imagining the delights within. The director approached the movie with this desire in mind and viewers should do the same when watching it.

As if the visuals weren`t enough, the soundtrack by Sinoia Caves is similarly incredible though it remains criminally unavailable to buy.

Cannot recommend this highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beyond The Black Rainbow (2010), retro futurism 21 Mar 2014
Format:DVD
In an isolated commune like facility known as Arboria Dr Barry Nyle (Michael Rogers) tries to reach into the mind of a near comatose young woman, Elena (Eva Bourne).

Little known cult oddity, Beyond the Black Rainbow is a beautifully designed Canadian produced puzzle box of a movie. Written and directed by Panos Cosmatos, son of George Pan Cosmatos, it could best be described as a mesmerising display of retro futurism that draws inspiration from the counter culture of the 1960s and the science fiction films of the 1970s to 1980s. Loosely it involves a seemingly utopian future that through the corruption of it's ideals has become dystopian, but is more concerned with images, ideas and sound than conveying a linear narrative . This is a film that wears its influences on its sleeve with visual reference to Tarkovsky's Solaris, George Lucas' THX 1138 and Kubrick's 2001/Clockwork Orange. The early films of David Cronenberg and fellow canadian Jeff Lieberman's Blue Sunshine also loom prominently in the underlying themes. The score is a brilliant distillation of 70s progressive rock.

Beyond The Black Rainbow is fascinating film that uses pure style as its substance rather than telling a conventional story or having a deeper point to convey .
