Trailer – Joaquin Phoenix goes on a delirious journey in BEAU IS AFRAID

‘Beau Is Afraid’ from cult writer-director Ari Aster is proving to be a challenge for critics who are struggling to describe it due to its mind bending plot. The delirious journey starring Joaquin Phoenix goes into the unknown from one of the most inventive cinematic minds working today: the story of a man who sets out to visit his mother and discovers a world of malevolent forces and unseen eyes tracking his every move. Dense with meaning and aimed squarely at confronting the emotional chaos and collective uncertainty of our present day, Beau is Afraid follows one man’s odyssey through the depths of the end of history, finding horror and humour at every turn.
