About this deal

Aster himself has given little away about the film in interviews, but in June 2020 did tease the film, which was previously titled Disappointment Blvd. They all blend mum issues with the challenges of mental wellness and it’s hard not to relate to the sentiments that are behind them. Clearly on or over the verge of a breakdown, Beau is afraid of his mother, whom he is now preparing to visit. But stick with it and you’ll find a film so overstuffed with ambition that makes all the others look like they aren’t trying hard enough.

Beau wakes up wounded two days later in the house of a married couple, Grace and Roger, who live with their angsty teenage daughter Toni, and care for an unstable veteran named Jeeves, who was their late son's battle buddy until he was killed in action. Throughout those three hours, the mewling Phoenix doesn't convey much more than the abject sadness and self-pity that drip from him in the film's opening minutes, and the episodic structure means that while each segment is fascinating in its own right, they don't together contribute anything essential to the narrative. Ce mal qu'est la schizophrénie, dans ses manifestations les plus violentes, est exploré ici sans filtres. Beau is Afraid will officially be released in US cinemas on 21st April 2023, so there's only a few months to wait for those who are stateside. The score was released on April 14, 2023, a week before the film's wide theatrical release, through A24's music division, and is separated into five parts, corresponding with the five acts of the film in which the songs appear.It features Joaquin Phoenix in the central role, with his co-star Stephen McKinley Henderson previously telling The Hollywood Reporter that the star had a working relationship with Aster which was as though they were "really old friends".

Joaquin Phoenix, to whom Aster was significantly drawn following his career-torching identity-crisis mockumentary I’m Still Here , is middle-aged bundle of nerves Beau. Aster’s new film is set for a UK release on Friday 19 May and has an epic run time of two hours and 59 minutes!

the "exuberantly manic energy of Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love" (2002), the "nightmare logic of David Lynch's Eraserhead (1977), " Charlie Kaufman's painfully contrived Synecdoche, New York" (2008), and "slipping on a Buñuelian banana skin".
