Film: Beyond the Black Rainbow

Beyond the Black Rainbow is the 2010 debut film by Canadian writer and director Panos Cosmatos. Set in 1983, the film follows a girl named Elena, a telepath studied and locked inside a research compound, and the unstable therapist that supervises her. Things start getting astoundingly weirder very quickly. The film is shot in the style of 70s cold sci-fi movies, such as THX 1138, featuring deliberately slow and cold pacing, as well as a Brown Note / Drone of Dread score.
