The Film: Beyond the Black Rainbow
The Guest: Hotshot comedian Ken Reid
Beyond the Black Rainbow (2011) is an odd film to crack. It’s beautifully shot, with its neon lights and retro-futuristic setting on full display. The plot, however, is the conundrum. It’s deft with its own history; one of which, we are not very privy to. We are just meant to roll with it. To say the film is psychedelic, isn’t allowing it to be what it is: a beautifully rendered but frustratingly surreal ‘escape from’ movie. It’s an endurance test, but to help me through it is this episode’s guest, comedy hot shot, Ken Reid* (TV Guidance Counselor). Listen as we try to unravel the enigmatic Beyond the Black Rainbow.
