Beau Is Afraid
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Beau, a white man with grey hair and wearing pyjamas, stares in horror off screen, his face covered in oddly shaped wounds
Beau Is Afraid, dir. Ari Aster, USA / UK / Finland 2023, 178 min., English, 15

The story of a man who sets out to visit his mother and discovers a world of malevolent forces and unseen eyes tracking his every move. Dense with meaning and aimed squarely at confronting the emotional chaos and collective uncertainty of our present day, Ari Aster’s Beau Is Afraid follows one man’s odyssey through the depths of the end of history, finding horror and humour at every turn.
