'Beyond' would be more interesting with limitations.

There's much to admire about Panos Cosmatos' directorial debut, but the end result is admittedly not for all tastes.

Add two more stars here if zoning out to weirdo-dreamy, '80s public-access TV with a synthesizer soundtrack is your idea of midnight fun.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Yes, this movie is even worse than "Battlefield Earth."

If you follow the muddled spacy film's logic throughout, you deserve a merit honor badge for devotion to service beyond the call of duty.

While never quite dull, 'Beyond the Black Rainbow' doesn't achieve all the chills it's capable of.

This would-be cult classic is the movie equivalent of gazing at a lava lamp for nearly two hours.

"Beyond the Black Rainbow" has a doomy, dreamy, druggy, draggy feel that's impressively sustained - until it becomes oppressive, then pointless, then laughable.

Much of the time, watching Beyond the Black Rainbow is accompanied by head scratching, but perhaps that's the point of this trippy outing.

Close-ups of a needle penetrating gnarled toes and a mutant slathered in what I choose to believe is bittersweet chocolate make as much sense as the scary drawings of angry vulvas hiding in a drawer.

It's pretentious and definitely not for all tastes.

Nothing much happens in this experimental-type science fiction horror film. What little does happen is at a slow-motion snail's pace.

The movie looks like it was lit by lava lamps, scored on Moog synthesizers, written between bong hits and acted underwater. None of this is meant as praise.

Comprehensibility does not appear to be one of this writer/director's goals, but if someone is able to help Cosmatos marshal his raw visual talent, I'll be first in line to see his second film.

Part Cronenberg, part Bava, and part De Palma ... It's a film that manages to feel both new and long-forgotten at the same time.

The product of a fevered mad auteur... May prove to be one of the more rewarding and disturbing film experiences in many a year.

Audiences who appreciate oddball first efforts from talents such as Lynch (Eraserhead), Cronenberg (Shivers) and Jeunet (Delicatessen) will be thankful.

Beyond The Black Rainbow is more surface than substance, but those surfaces are gleamingly polished enough to make for a hypnotic experiment that goes beyond genre pastiche or art-school wankery to seem formally daring.

A film that's shockingly disturbing at times but also quite beautiful in its artistry.

Lessons of Darkness

A reverential ode to Kubrick, Argento, Cronenberg, Altered States, John Carpenter synth scores, '70s sci-fi and '80s fantasy, and mind-boggling, hyper-stylized madness.
