Beyond the Black Rainbow

I liked this movie though I don't recommend it for the average movie goer. Only those that study cinema should even attempt it. It reminded me of Tarkovsky. The images seem to be spliced together to say that self improvement, at least that at the hands of "professionals", is self imprisonment at the hands of demented perverts. These same professionals have created two monsters, the more obvious in the vein of Patrick Bateman--he even looked like Christian Bale a bit. The other is an innocent girl with supernatural powers who ends up settling in the suburbs. The images are beautiful. Check it out if you're willing to commit the time and watch it all.
