The Beast

Directed by Bertrand Bonello

Cast: Dasha Nekrasove, George Mackay, Guslagie Malanda, Lea Seydoux

One of the most mind-bending, genre-defying cinematic experiments of the 21st century, Bertrand Bonello’s THE BEAST attempts to justify the value of humanity within an increasingly technological world. Built around fearless performances from Léa Seydoux and George MacKay, the film follows a woman living in 2044 who undergoes a treatment to rid herself of emotion while mysteriously running into a version of the same man over and over again. As she slips between that world, 1910s Paris, and 2014 Los Angeles, the film juggles historical romance, speculative sci-fi, and paranoid thriller, eventually occupying its own wholly original yet heartbreaking space.
