A filmmaker consistently unafraid to wade through the weird miasma of contemporary life, Bertrand Bonello works from the outside in, dramatizing the psychological toll of the political and cultural world around us. Here he has created a dynamic and disturbing parable that jumps between three different time periods (1910, 2014, and 2044) to diagnose our acute—and perhaps eternal—feelings of estrangement and alienation…Touching on modern anxieties of AI and incel culture, which may recur throughout history as commonly as love and hate, THE BEAST, like all good science-fiction, asks essential questions about the ever-shifting status of humanity itself. 2023, DCP, in French and English with English subtitles, Sideshow Pictures and Janus Films, 146 minutes.
