Science fiction
While visually awesome, Beyond the Black Rainbow is possibly one of the most-boring science-fiction movies ever made. Elena (Eva Allan) is being held captive in some weird, futuristic medical facility, where she seems to be the only patient. She is mentally tortured by the sadistic Dr. Barry Nyle (Michael Rogers). After being taunted by her nurse, Elena displays the reason for her imprisonment: She exhibits dangerous telekinetic abilities. Even though she is under heavy sedation, she is able to escape and is tracked by Nyle, who wants his “experiment” back in his control. This is one of the first modern films I’ve seen that is able to successfully re-create the appearance of a ’70s or ’80s sci-fi film. It looks great, and for this, I applaud the filmmakers. Unfortunately, the amazing visuals are not enough to help the flat script.
