‘Beau is Afraid`: A performance worth savouring


Beau, played by the incredible talented yet underrated Joaquin Phoenix, is a paranoid schizophrenic given to hallucinations.

This film is basically about his attempt to get to his mother who lives in a different city and it’s an epic odyssey of wildly fluctuating moments of esoteric and quixotic drama, the likes of which we’ve never seen before. And it’s not an easy watch at all.

eau is a man plagued with an insane amount of anxiety. He has arranged to visit his mother on the anniversary of his father`s death by buying a plane ticket, but his fears and other incredibly cryptic circumstances prevent him from making it to his Mother’s.  Beau’s mental demons come into play and we see him having to confront them as the narrative plays out.
