Came to this one after watchng the fantastic Mandy last night. Turns out Panos Cosmatos is no one hit wonder. Beyond th Black Rainbow is an absolutely beautiful film.

Without a doubt the best looking DC animated film. One of the best looking animated films…

The crew is wonderfully cast. The entire cast gives top notch performances. Except…
