'Another inimitable 1970's exploration centering on man's woeful inability to fully accept his arbitrary, nonsensical existence
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Another inimitable 1970's exploration centering on man's woeful inability to fully accept his arbitrary, nonsensical existence, and the complete lack of any tangible evidence whatsoever of god / aliens / ghostie-bonks, or even watchable latter-day Ridley Scott movies. Along with the equally deranged Chariots of The Gods', 'The Force Beyond' is must-see TV, and proof positive, yet again, that the world is screwy enough without inventing a god or errant space gremloids! Grab a chilly sixer out of the fridge, decant said frosty ale into a decent pint glass, allow head to settle and rapidly discharge amber loveliness into the gaping wet hole in the lower quadrant of your head - REPEAT AS NEEDED. Of course, drinking along with potent medications whilst viewing this gonzoid film will greatly improve your entertainment experience!
