In all fairness, The Whale came out during a very busy winter at the box office and there’s sort of more scope for that in the US, which could be why it had a different release date in the UK. Mark Kermode's review for The Guardian found the film was "sprawlingly picaresque" and "a rambling, labyrinthine, navel-gazing romp.

This will be just in time to land for a little of the summer holiday movie market if it does well at the box office. Beau Is Afraid is reminiscent of two other recent extravaganzas with comparable eccentricities and running times (and the same first letter), Alejandro G Iñárritu's Bardo and Damien Chazelle's Babylon. You get a pretty stark taste of this in the trailer below, which gets is pretty grim at times, despite its lighter notes. Martin Scorsese was similarly enthusiastic about the film, citing Aster as "one of the most extraordinary new voices in world cinema" and praising Aster for subverting the traditional three-act structure.Roger promises to take Beau to his mother's estate as soon as possible but insists Beau rest until he is healed. 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. Pic is produced by A24, Ari Aster and Lars Knudsen from Square Peg, Len Blavatnik and Danny Cohen from Access Entertainment and Elisa Alvares and Timo Argillander of IPR. It’s decapitated but because of a birthmark he instantly realizes it’s not his mother’s corpse but the maid’s. Phoenix is extraordinary as Beau – pouring his whole self into someone else’s psychosis for a jittery, child-like performance that feels like it might break apart at any moment.

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! If Aster had simply chopped out the second of the film's three hours, it might have been more coherent, not less. Meanwhile, Dune actor Stephen McKinley Henderson stars as Beau’s therapist, and Parker Posey plays Elaine, Beau’s childhood love. It’s a long film though and the madness did become exhausting for me a little over half way through. That's not to say that the film is bad – in many respects, it's brilliant – but no one will watch it without asking how he got to make such a mind-blowing, genre-bending, bladder-testing three-hour sprawl of Oedipal angst, despair and absurdist black comedy, with no conventional plot or character development.She guilt-trips Beau for supposedly not loving her enough and he demands to know the truth about his father. Why they now make him look like THIS is symbolic (or result of wife’s drug company) because earlier in Beau’s apartment there’s a normal photograph if him on the wall hammering in a nail. sexual violence and sexual threat Young boys go through a women's dirty laundry, sniffing and stealing her underwear. Fast becoming the darling of indie house A24 after just two films, Aster’s latest is what happens when a studio gives a promising new director the money and scope to do whatever the hell they want. The intriguing trailer opens with Beau's mother saying: "I am so sorry for what your daddy passed down to you, but I wanted a child, the greatest gift of my life.
