    A sort of 70s/80s retro-sci-fi movie with a David Lynch vibe. Cool & interesting visuals, but the plot was paper-thin and moved at a snail's pace. I was bored.

    Beyond the Black Rainbow could be a good deal shorter; the final half-hour really tries the patience. It's also a little too much in thrall of its influences (David Cronenberg's films and Ken Russell's Altered States for the most part, but also Carpenter, Argento, maybe even Boards of Canada and the video game Bioshock?) to stand on its own as a mindbending psycho-horror. But Panos Cosmatos' debut feature at least steals from the best, while the villainous Michael Rogers steals this very picture with his malevolent presence.

    Amazing soundtrack and fantastic visuals. I still have a problem with the ending, it just feels completely rushed but it doesn't ruin the complete experience. Like I said, it's a visual treat and audio wise, the sound editing is worth a watch alone.

    Chromatically beautifully but bleak as fuck

    Very slow moving but it gets better at the end.

    It looks great, it sounds great, but for awhile you feel like you are watching a feature length film version of a video art exhibit.

    Once the film starts to embrace its horror roots and becomes a gory cat-and-mouse slasher near the end it abruptly ends.

    It's like a mixture of 2001: A space oddyssey and Lost highway!
    And maybe a bit of "Under the skin" and "Ex Machina" as well (If I can compare to more recent movies).
    A delightful and psychedelic watch, but pretty horrifying and disturbing at times. I like it a lot though!

    Visually this film is amazing and it has a good story to it. However, the pacing is terrible. It's deliberately slow but it really is just way too slow. The director of this film has a good eye for creepy imagery. But seriously the pace was like watching paint dry.

    Hoogstwaarschijnlijk de meest enigmatische film die ik ooit heb gezien, besef wel dat al veel weird shit de revue is gepasseerd. "Beyond the Black Rainbow" is één of andere bizarre fusie van "2001, A Space Odyssey" (decors, setting en all round enigmatische atmosfeer), "Suspiria" (belichting) en "Resident Evil" (telekinetisch meisje + zombieachtige mutanten). Voeg hier nog eens een Power Ranger outfit aan toe, de allegorie van de grot van Plato…

    Hovedpersonen i denne her film er en mand, der udsendsmæssigt ligner Matthew McConaug(hey sexy lady!) der arbejder på en form for hospital, hvor der er en pige indlagt, som ikke siger noget, og virker ret psykisk ustabil.

    Filmen forgår i 1980'erne, men det hele ligner noget fra en fremtids sci-fi film med rene blanke flader, rum med masser af lys, og kreativt designet møbler, undtaget tøjet som er i stil fra 1980'er.
    Farverne er flotte og stærke, primært i rød…
