Beyond the Black Rainbow - 9/30/17

Colin uses benign pharmacology and energy sculpting to trip out Beyond the Black Rainbow (2011), director Panos Cosmatos' nod to science-fiction and horror films of the 1980's. A mad doctor keeps a young woman with telekinetic powers trapped in an underground clinic, where 60's-era psychedelic experiments have produced inhuman results. Listen as we discuss the merit of pop culture objects that imitate the style and design of the 80's, movies that value atmosphere over character or plot, and lay the ground work for what constitutes an "art" movie, and more, on this week's exciting episode!
