Review 4K Movie

Ari Aster, director of "Reincarnation" and "Solstice", is the man who gave a breath of fresh air to the almost dead horror genre by crossing it with art house. Craftsman does not often please us with new works, so his new movie "All Fears of Bo" can be considered an event. Especially, Aster works in a new genre for himself, as the movie is a black comedy, only with elements of horror. On top of that, it's Ari's longest movie, running three hours, and it's also A24's highest-budgeted movie of all time. Well, and starring Joaquin Phoenix, whose name on the poster is the equivalent of a quality guarantee.

Now put it all together: a three-hour art-house black comedy with a budget of 60 million, directed by one of the main authors in modern cinema, starring the legendary Phoenix - if art-house is not "a movie where you don't understand" for you, then this is enough to run for tickets.

The plot is about Bo, who is afraid of literally everything: to swallow a drop of Listerine, not to drink the pill with water, and even to make love, because he thinks that everything in the world can kill him. Bo practically never leaves the house, afraid of the horrors going on around him.

First it is worth saying about the world in which the action of the movie takes place - it is the most grotesque and hypertrophied depiction of reality, where the main character literally has a massacre outside his window, people jumping from the roofs, a maniac runs naked through the streets, everyone kills, cuts and rapes each other. "Bullshit," a lot of people will say, but look at the main character. He is a battered and afraid of everything, that's why he sees the world as something absolutely terrible and cruel, and through such blackness the director conveys his fear, allowing you to see the picture of the world through Bo's eyes, thereby the effect of presence only intensifies. And the blackness in the movie is deliberately exaggerated and not serious, so it is not frightening, but amusing.

In All Fears of Bo, Astaire squeezed all the juice out of his creativity as both director and screenwriter.

As a director, he has made an incredibly beautiful film in which the visuals serve as an additional narrator for a story that is largely revealed not directly through dialog but through images and symbols. The form of the movie constantly undergoes changes to match the events taking place - then it is a comedy of the absurd, then a bloody massacre, then a fairy tale, then a wild surreal and horror, and in the end it all merges together, turning into a mixture of allegories, symbols, subtexts, images and meanings, bringing the madness of the movie to a peak - in an exceptionally good way - and, having reached its powerful catharsis, the black comedy becomes a very heavy movie, leaving with a sad aftertaste and a head full of thoughts.

And, as a screenwriter, Ari spun the story, filling it with a lot of interconnected small details, throwing the audience with questions, the answers to which are given leisurely and gradually, giving time to think and deepen into the movie. I am glad that in the end Aster-screenwriter does not dump the answers on us, but only hints at them, asking leading questions, the full picture has to be made up by yourself, and many moments can be interpreted in different ways, although the general idea of the movie is clear.

In general, the film has a lot of surreal and strange images, each of which symbolizes something and reveals the main character and the themes raised by the film.

In particular, the movie shows the cruelty of human nature, discusses the Oedipus complex, the cycle of family violence that passes from generation to generation. But the main theme of the movie is the theme of mental trauma and its impact on a person, which is revealed not only in the main character, but also in the family that sheltered Bo, his mother and, of course, Bo himself, who, because of the absence of a mother in his childhood, who simply loved him unconditionally, began to lose his identity, on the background of regular emotional abuse began doubts in his own masculinity, fear of everything in the world and problems with separation - and all this together finally erased Bo's identity. Added to this is the horrifying sense of guilt instilled by his mother.

The movie also shows what his life could have been like without his fears and self-humiliation, but the problem is that he's afraid to transcend his fear, precisely because of all of the above.

Hence the governing idea of the movie that love should be unconditional, selfless, a parent should love a child for nothing, not trying to fit him or her to his or her own standards. Such "conditional love" simply breaks a very young person and destroys his personality, paralyzing him for the rest of his life. That's why in the end, even after dealing with his mother, Bo is still drowning in his own guilt, which will never let him go.

Well, and played Bo, as it was said, brilliant Joaquin Phoenix. And this role is another benefit for him. Joaquin again plays a complex character and dissolves in it, pressing the pedal of acting talent into the floor, he from the beginning of the movie and to its end strikes with his brilliant game. He gives himself to the role to the fullest in every scene, and there are plenty of complex scenes here - the entire movie is a solid complex scene, and Phoenix just boos in it, not letting you take your eyes off the movie for the entire three hours.

I really want Joaquin to get at least an Oscar nomination, because his role in All Fears of Bo is another pinnacle of his acting skills.

Also, "All Fears of Bo" is a very emotional movie. Not just in the sense that it is sad, but literally emotional - while watching it, you experience the whole spectrum of emotions: laughter, shock, sadness, bewilderment, fear, and heaviness at the end.

Among Ari Aster's other movies, I liked this one the best. It's about Joaquin Phoenix, the successful blending of genres, the visuals, and the depth.
