JUSTICE?: RAMBO makes Millions, THE BEAST, $160,000…
Allegedly came out during a change of administration at COLUMBIA, and they knew not what to do with it, and at a time when the ‘blockbuster’ mentality was starting to become the norm, THE BEAST may have played in what, five cities for a week or two…..they say the most valuable gems can be the hardest to find…and THE BEAST is no exception to that maxim…
This is as close to a ‘foreign film’ out of Hollywood as you are going to get…the story brings the conflict between people forward, and makes the action incidental-virtual guaranteed bankruptcy for a US film today.
And as for the actors speaking English-I think the producers realised they were close enough to no profit by having one language being subtitled as it was-the whole film being subtitled would have seen no financing at all, probably.-That just doesnt fly in H-town….’art-house’ kiss of death… However…
The acting is first rate. The story is lean, and to the point. The scenery is stark and beautiful-well, IMHO…. There is little pandering to the audience, and little Cultural Condescension that I can see-
The viewer soon becomes loyal to the Mujahadeem Rebels, not because they are against the Ruskies, but because they have the will and the right to exist as they are, not to be dictated to by a ‘higher’ invading power…
Thought it suffers a bit from low budget, I would rate THE BEAST up with FULL METAL JACKET, PLATOON, DAS BOOT, and APOCALYPSE NOW… an EIGHT out of TEN stars… dont rent this-OWN it!
Suspense, irony, and drama about people at war
“The Beast” (a tank) tells the saga of a band of Afghan warriors in foot pursuit of a crippled Russian tank across Afghan desert. The film, a drama with some action and no large scale battles, manages to whet the interest, build suspense, deliver some wartime ironies, and provide slivers of insight into what war in Afghanistan must be like – something much more relevant today than during the Russian occupation. An interesting film which doesn’t take sides most likely to be appreciated by guys into war dramas.
