Intense but hard to understand thriller.
15 November 2004 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Telly Savalas wrote, directed, and starred in this obscure late 70's thriller.

Savalas stars as Dr. Nicholas Mati, a disturbed psychologist tormented by the memory of a patient that committed suicide. Dr. Mati feels that he was responsible in some sort of way and that he could saved his life. Through flashbacks, we as the audience can get an opinion. I think that the patience was a really tormented soul that wanted suicide; Dr. Mati didn't have a chance to save him.

Anyways, the unfortunate event haunts Dr. Mati and now his life is turning into a nightmare. Besides having horrible hallucinations about it, Dr. Mati's personal life is going through some problems. His family notices that he's been acting weird and his coleagues also feel that has somehow changed. He even starts to feel attraction for a beautiful sexy blonde student from the class he imparts.

It's never assured but it's implied that he fell in love with her. There's a point in the movie that he enters her house at night acting really, really weird. What were his motives?

Anyways, "Beyond Reason" is a pretty bizarre drama that does not establishes a solid plot. Instead we get events that are not connected correctly and that's why the audience gets lost at some events. Not to mention that it's hard not to lose interest on it.

Savalas was brave enough in trying to create an original plot but I think that his direction skills weren't enough to make a solid drama. Still, his effort should be recognized.

The best thing of the movie has to be the super beautiful Leslie Valentine. I'm not sure which actress plays the role but whoever it is; she's incredibly beautiful and cute. She's worth the watch, believe me. 6/10. Watch it only if you are a fan of the great, great Telly Savalas.
