    “Hello, my name is Dr. Mercurio Arboria, and I am the founder of the Arboria institute.
    It has long been my dream to find the perfect way for people to achieve simply - happiness, contentment, inner peace. These seem to be things that strangely elude us all. But it doesn't have to be that way. We at Arboria have found a path.”

    Concocted of saturated red and blue lighting, macro-focus close ups and pulsating electric ambience, Beyond the Black Rainbow

    Beyond the Black Rainbow is extremely intriguing. Unfortunately, it is for all the wrong reasons! It makes you wonder how a movie so well made, with so many great shots and a conscious effort to engage you in this atmospheric world can be so extremely boring.

    Sounds! Sights! Colors! A really cool art installation. I just wish the door wasn't locked behind me for an hour and forty minutes.

    This movie is like a visual manifestation of a headache I can't get rid of.

    At the "Arboria Institute" in 1983, a doctor holds a telepathic woman hostage, performing unexplained experiments involving a glowing pyramid. The plot is underdeveloped---what's there is delivered at a glacial pace with details that are deliberately vague and confusing---but the Kubrick-inspired experimental visuals and 1980s mind-trip atmosphere make it worth a look for patient cult film fans.

    "A State of Mind
    A Way of Being"
    Possibly one of the weirdest films I've seen in my life-up there with anything Lynch has ever done.
    Evil Dr. Nyle is keeping a girl with telekinesis named Elena imprisoned in a mysterious institute(called Arboria) while he plays mind games with her.
    "A Practical Application
    of An Abstract Idea"
    After a spellbinding introduction, in which we see a lone man drenched in red light who is giving a promotion speech for Arboria;…

    Film #15 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge


    14. A film by a director whose films I've never seen

    Visually it's pretty awesome. I may have to rewatch it some time, I'm kind of perplexed by it.

    The long-anticipated prequel to "Happy Hell Night!"

    (i.e. the killers in both movies seriously look exactly the same. And both are solid flicks for entirely different reasons. Check 'em out.)
