La bête

Walerian Borowczyk France, 1975

inquisita's rating of the film The Beast

3,5 Pop culture folklore & mythology delivered via a sleazishly buoyant film which before being a satire is telling enough at face value: the ursinoid concupiscent lifeform recalls the intermediary figure btw human & animal that reigned for centuries over Pan-European unconscious owing to bipedal fighting stance, omnivore meals, sexual preferences 'more hominem': the brown Bear.
