It's ridiculous; it's tacky; it's pretentious - but it's touched with something comically sublime.
Thankfully, the film's hateful social commentary can be overlooked during its beguiling gonzo sex scenes.
Seen from its own amoral perspective, aided by Borowczyk's remarkable sense of framing and rhythm, La Bête is that rare achievement, a truly erotic film.
Mr. Borowczyk's handling of his actors and his themes is sledgehammer-heavy, painfully in keeping with his evident contempt for humanity.
Seemingly intended as a Buñuelian farce, the pitiful animal effects and erotic scenes instead provoke derision.
It dizzily and artfully celebrates the power of sex and lust without regard to anything but the primal, animal appetite.
A satirical, Buñuelian comedy of manners brimming over with pre-nuptial intrigue.
More charming than arousing, and solemnly silly.
Beyond the more censor-baiting material, The Beast is still a barbed, funny satire on sex, hypocrisy and repression.
The story is so convoluted, what with Rolls-Royces and a Catholic Cardinal and a priest who likes to kiss his two choir boys and... hey, it's worth seeing if you're into religious eroticism.
Beauty killed the beast, Borowczyk says, and erotic poetry freed the screen
The film is oddly effective and, unlike so many other "erotic classics," virtually undated.
I never except to see this arthouse film is very erotic while it finally released straight to DVD, not in the cinema in 1975 because it was banned for 30 years - it's true! This attempts to mix a fairy tale, a sort of comedy of manners and faked explicit bestiality.
This genuinely erotic film is wonderfully photographed and tasteless. The women here are stunningly beautiful and they are naked most of the time. Overall La Bête is a visual feast. Whether it be from the fetishistic attention to detail, or the visual motifs pregnant with information, director Walerian Borowczyk's masterpiece should be watched with care and attention.
I wanted to like this a lot more than I did, but as a whole it came across as amateurish and juvenile, a weak framework being used as an excuse to show sexually "shocking" imagery. Great, now I've seen horses mate. Oh wow, they're showing that guy's johnson. Sex and sexual imagery can have meaning and can be truly daring, but there needs to be an artistically perceivable point. I found no such thing in The Beast, which largely left me just bored despite all the supposedly lustful ongoings.
