Last night, we previewed British drama Beast, the feature film debut from director Michael Pearce. Taboo's Jessie Buckley stars as Jersey girl Moll who is drawn into a relationship with mysterious outsider Pascal (musician and actor Johnny Flynn), which threatens to tear her sheltered life apart. So what did Unlimited members make of it?
Jordan Gallagher says he went outside his comfort zone when watching the movie, and the experience was more exciting as a result.
Kieran Battams praises the movie's brooding sense of atmosphere.
Honestly I thought this film was incredible. I was captivated from beginning to end. This is going to be the most overlooked film of 2018 but will remain one of my favourites I'm sure— Kieran Battams (@RiceCrispyPoo) April 16, 2018
Karen Woodham compliments Pearce's direction.
Philip Foster says that any Unlimited members who are a fan of brave, alternative cinema should go and see it.
The sort of film unlimited screenings should be used for more, something a bit unusual that deserves to be seen. https://t.co/SVYkgFPRlT— Philip Foster (@PhiltheBear) April 16, 2018
And Debby Salisbury says the lead performances of Buckley and Flynn are memorably powerful.
Bleak but somehow beautiful. Stark cinematography. Powerful acting but so very dark and disturbing.— Debby Sainsbury (@lifeastrin) April 16, 2018
On the other hand, Big Man G says the movie didn't quite work for him.
It felt like someone putting into action all of the different theory and techniques they had learned in film school all at once. No real payoff to any story thread throughout. #beast #CineworldUnlimited— Big Man G (@Grazamundo) April 17, 2018
And Martin also confessed the movie's slow-burning sense of threat may not be for everyone.
I like a slow film but this meandered so slowly into nothingness that I could have gone to sleep.— Martin (@MartTweetsStuff) April 16, 2018
