    Beware, this is not a regular film.

    It doesn't follow the industry standards, in the sense that the story doesn't flow as we are used to. You will find a very intriguing story and a beautiful image that will try to submerge you into the unsettling universe of the movie through close-ups, unfocused images, reflections, a very distinctive color palette and the sound of the synthesizer.

    If you are of the impatient kind, this movie is not for you. If…

    This is not a simple film to review in as much as it's not a film you simply watch. You experience it. For some, it will be the worst film they have ever seen while it will be an instant classic for others. Arty, pretentious, impenetrable, slow are all words that would describe the film and yet it has such an impressive command of it's atmosphere and tone that it is truly haunting.

    Taking inspiration from a variety of late…

    Deliciously weird and awesomely retro, BTBR is a stunning debut from Panos Cosmatos. The soundtrack is phenomenal as are the two leads and it just has so much to say, giving you so much to consider.

    The final 15 minutes kind of rush by causing the pacing to awkwardly change in the final moments, but I still definitely recommend this...

    ...With a strong joint.

    Bullshit screenplay that seems written by a nerdish 15-year old, but some beautiful shots and nice music. The super slow pacing, an abuse of superimposition and maybe one of the worst actors ever make the whole experience quite excruciating.

    Hypnotic scifi/horror hybrid set in the eighties because - just a guess - computers looked cooler back then and the music was better, at least in the movies. Cosmatos (over)uses Panavision scope lenses, slow motion, superimpositions, double-exposures and a fantastic, gut-rumbling synth soundtrack to create an oppressive atmosphere reminiscent of Argento, Tarkovski, Russell and even Kubrick. It's a real shame, then, that he doesn't really seem to know how to wrap up this peculiar trip: the last ten minutes are so bafflingly generic it looks like someone just taped another movie over Cosmatos' ending (a common mistake in the eighties, kids).

    Visually stunning, but ultimately dull. This one may need another watch.

    I was looking forward to watching this... and it was a huge disappointment. Visually very appealing, it was very different. The problem with the whole fucking movie is it didn't make sense at all. It felt like I was watching a video made fore artistic purposes that went on for way too long. The actors did well with the lines they had. Just.... if you're into very abstract movies then this is definitely the thing for you.

    Attempt to make a cult/midnight movie is a failure on almost every level. The film starts out promisingly enough with a fake filmstrip talking about a new fad/pop psychology method with a host/founder of the method that looks like Carl Sagan. It's an amusing start to a film that is weird for weird's sake. The plot has something to do with a girl with telekinetic powers trapped in some kind of a psychiatric ward where she appears to be the…

    An incoherent pastiche of popular surrealism. Though it could be useful as an example of how NOT to make self referential cinema, surreal or otherwise. Totally devoid of drama, unlike the films it's trying to be. And yes, Kenneth Anger's work had catharsis and story, so does Lynch and Jordowsky. Don't waste your time, and re-watch 'El Topo' or 'Scorpio Rising', or better yet, Luis Bunuel's 'Los Olvidados', or even way-better, watch 'Pandora's Box', it should be weird enough for you.
