salo or 120 days of sodomBy a customer from Stoke-on-Trent , 07 Oct 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]what a rubbish film, i read the reviews on it and was expecting something really terrible, it was dated and boring, all of the scenes were really false and while i can see why it was banned in the seventies by the standards of some films today it was just laughable, really not worth watching.

Beyond RemedyBy kaoz (2 reviews) , 06 Dec 2012Nothing special, one like many out there and in here. Don't think that I would ever recommend Beyond Remedy to friends.
Beyond Remedy - These Actors' English PronounciationsBy Sybilisation (57 reviews) from London , 23 Sep 2012Could have been interesting, but like in quite a few other films (Grimm Love, Strip Mind, and one with Til Schweiger I saw on this service) German actors were struggling to speak English (or American,) which made this one unwatchable for me. I made it through the first 10mins, then skipped through (in 2 steps.)
These are my thoughts on Beyond Remedy: (One of the stars I awarded are for the title, which is referring to the actors English or wannabe American pronounciattion.)
Why oh why do German filmmakers keep making films in which German actors are struggling to sound American? (Retorical question)
Why were the students communicating in ~English even when there was no non-German speaker around?
Why did they all fly to a location in Germany? Some of them seemed to come from JFK, were they supposed to be New Yorkers?
Elocution lessons are part of the curriculum of drama schools, and even if the actors in Beyond Remedy (and I suppose they have all studied - Germans study) only had elocution lessons in German, their hearing - to recognise and imitate sounds/ noises - should have been trained.
Also, there's no real difference in learning to speak and properly pronounce an unfamiliar German dialect (something else they would have learned) or a foreign language.
Still, this is so unnecesssary - why not shoot the film in the actors' (and director's, crew's... caterer's) mother tongue and subtitle.
Beyond redemptionBy Munkki (54 reviews) from London , 22 May 2011Oh dear! be afraid very afraid....be afraid that you might accidentally watch this poorly scripted, appallingly acted, cheap as chips drivel...
Not impressed!By desmondsdoll (264 reviews) from Stockport , 29 Jan 2011This was so draggingly slow to start with some painful acting - it did pick up within the last 20 minutes or so but then the very end let it down again.
The killer was the only decent actor in my opinion - a sad disappointment, although I'm glad this was included in my free Watch Now, so that I didn't waste a credit.
