Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Beast (1988)

Directed by Kevin Reynolds

Starring George Dzundza, Jason Patric, Steven Bauer, Stephen Baldwin


Nice simple story, nice camerawork. Nice moody music. Sounds 80’s-ish, which helps, I think. Interesting choice to make the Russians speak perfectly American English, avoiding subtitles and even accents. Obviously a ploy for us to identify and side with them for the better part of the movie.

Patric is great, probably one of his best performances, along with Your Friends and Neighbors.
