Beyond the Black Rainbow
You won’t find a less cohesive low-budget sci-fi shit-show than newbie filmmaker Panos Cosmatos’s “Beyond the Black Rainbow.” Tedium sets in quickly as a poorly wigged Nile Rogers appears as Barry Nyle, a futuristic shrink intent on torturing his solitary patient, the near-catatonic Elena (Eva Allan). It’s the future — at least a 1983 version of a future that never panned out — but everything looks like it was lifted off a “Brady Bunch” set from the ‘70s. Everything about “Beyond the Black Rainbow” screams Eastern-European-student-film. Look at all the blurry images under different colored light filters. Listen to the junky electro-noise musical score. Marvel at some of the worst acting you’ve ever seen. “Beyond the Black Rainbow” is destined to become a cult movie for acid-tripping losers who need something to do while they trip balls. Yes, this movie is worse even than “Battlefield Earth.” "Beyond the Black Rainbow" sucks black ant dingleberries.
Rated R . 110 mins. (F) (Zero Stars - out of five/no halves)
