Savalas directing debut
14 July 2003 | by dead_dudeINthehouseSee all my reviews

BEYOND REASON is the kind of movie that makes you feel bad after watching it. I'm a Savalas fan, but I have to be objective and state that his debut in the directing chair was a failure. The story is bad overall, I guess that you haven't heard about something similar... That is because it's a terrible plot. Savalas is a mad, disturbed, and interdict psychologist.Dr. Mati is married and has a young daughter. He turned crazy when he couldn't save one of his patients from committing suicide. Since then, Dr. Mati has some night terrors, and flashbacks about the horrible incident. I won't get that much into the plot because it's useless, I mean it's stupid the way the movie is carried. Savalas stalks his beautiful student Leslie Valentine (played by a sensual, and young Priscila Barnes. I remember that situation to be very disturbing.

If you have the chance to watch BEYOND REASON do it, just if you are a Savalas fan.

2/10 -After watching it, immediately boot it to the trash can!
