It is rare you find a smart movie that keeps you guessing and thendelivers at the end. Still picking up peaces of my mind after this one.Style wise there is so much to love here, it feels like Clive Barkermeets Fincher. The story is captivating from beginning to end despitethe fact that there's more blood in this movie then I'm use to, itnever took away from the story but only added to it. Some times yournot sure where the director is going with the story but then he givesyou a little bit more and keeps you entertained till the final framewhere he delivers his final blow that will keep you thinking for days.The score in its self is very interesting as the genre bending storyprogresses nothing ever feels lost or out of place. Not sure what willbecome of Beautiful Prison all I know is that I Frickin loved it.
Beautiful Prison is a heavily stylized, genre-blending narrative focused around a brain damaged man, who, after a violent accident, awakens with a restored intellect and a supernatural ability to control the happenings of his world. Tonally, Beautiful Prison plays in and out of several different genres: action, familial abuse, horror, romance, and comedy. The world is often mysterious, occasionally wonderful, and at times terrifying.
