  • davy's rating of the film The Beautiful Beast

    What a strange film. It showcases the lives of a family with dysfunctions of truly mythological proportions; the scale of these characters' vices feel almost like they would be more at home in the middle of a Greek myth. At least, that's the only way I've found to approach the story that makes it work for me.
