Beau is scared – of life, world and especially his mom. On his way to visit his family, he is drawn into an unexpected spiral of absurd events he could never have imagined in his darkest dreams. The solitary weirdo must overcome his fears and finally take his life into his own hands on a wild pilgrimage of humour, terror and adventure. Cinematic visionary Ari Aster joins forces with acting chameleon Joaquin Phoenix to deliver an extraordinarily immersive cinematic experience that breaks down barriers of both genres and audience expectations. There are some works of art that are not worth understanding in every last detail, you just need to connect to the surreal imagery and enjoy it, which is the case with this film. David Lynch is slowly retiring and the most likely candidate for the vacant position of cinema king is Ari Aster with his magnum opus. IMDb web trailer
