As a youtube user puts it …. mix every single sci-fi masterpiece from the 60s to now (well, not any, but your “top of mind” ones), mix the hyperviolence, mix the secret compounds, mix every cliche you can imagine off (evil doctors, ergonomic furniture, quilted spacesuits and translucent atmospheres… and you’ll have the perfect masterpiece: “2001: A Clockwork Tron Enter the Sunshine Void”.
I personally think Vincenzo Natali’s Cube (one another Canadian sci-fi classic) is missing from that title and the evident aesthetic influence, but still, “Arboria” could easily be a new Izon, or any other big & bad sect / corporation.
“Beyond the Black Rainbow” is Panos Cosmatos‘ feature film debut, presented at the 2010 Whistler Film Festival and that besides Tribeca & the Fantasia International film festivals… it hasn’t been released to the public. Received with mixed feelings by the sci-fi geek community the film hasn’t generated much buzz as you would expect of an “80s” new old classic, but it seems like the film may finally make it to ordinary theaters as a couple of weeks ago a new trailer was posted on the iTunes dedicated page.
We’ll let you imagine when “soon” of the “coming soon” takes place; until then, we’ll await patiently for our appointment with Dr. Barry Nyle, we want to be enlightened too.
