OK... lets say, Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch smoked a sackful of 'Gaia Essence', a ripe ole bag of the stuff. Then, Andy Warhol dropped over with a flask full of 'Dream Mana' and the three had a right old time bouncing crazy ideas and concepts and decided after three straight days of inter-perceptionary travel, to make a movie... 'Beyond the Black Rainbow' is probably as close as you might ever get to seeing the labors from any such fictional collaboration.
I loved it. I can't wait to watch it again. If you believe you have an open mind, or consider yourself to be even remotely intelligent I would advise you to give this a chance. The devil is in the details. There is a new talent among us, and we as film fans should be grateful that someone like Panos Cosmatos has the balls to do things his way and present something that at the very least, is something f***ing different and refreshing.
I'll leave you with this, take from it what you will, I once showed one of my favorite sci fi's to a friend who is a die hard Star Wars fan, he hated it and thought it was stupid and slow; it was 'THX 1138' by George Lucas.
