A thrilling and inventive film
30 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film. Just when you think the crime genre has run out of original ideas along comes Beast with its entirely fresh take on a seemingly conventional story.

The direction of Beast was often striking, the film had a good script and the acting by all of the performers was top notch.

My attention isn't always held at the cinema, even good films have their boring bits. I'm happy to say that Beast transfixed me from beginning to end. Many of the film's scenes will stay with me for a long time.

An innovative and haunting thriller, if you like imaginative cinema I highly recommend it.
