Best of Turnstyle: Panos Cosmatos

on Friday, Dec. 30th


Turnstyle is opening up our archives from 2011 to share some of our favorite — all but uncut — interviews of the year!

This time out I’m sharing my conversation from AFI Fest with Panos Cosmatos, the director of the sublimely sinster Beyond The Black Rainbow. As I wrote in my review of the film, Beyond The Black Rainbow is the kind of movie you always imagined was going to show up on late night TV.

If you like genre films, experimental cinema and aberrant psychology, this conversation is for you.

Keep an eye out for Panos’ Beyond The Black Rainbow on the art house circuit this coming year. It’s a must on the big screen.

Check out the original, print version of this interview, and our review of Beyond The Black Rainbow.
