On January 10, 2023, the first trailer of Ari Aster’s Beau is Afraid was released. The film’s plot, according to A24, reads: “A paranoid man embarks on an epic odyssey to get home to his mother.” But with its odd visuals and unconventional storytelling, it looks like Aster has more in store, than a one sentence description can provide.
Fans are giddy to see the horror maestro back in the director’s chair. User Arnemyggen exclaims: “Finally an Aster film where its wacky sense of humor is a top priority. I love him.” Others are also open to seeing Aster handle this tone, like Asher Schmutz, who comments, “I wasn’t expecting Aster’s new film to be some kind of comedy, but I’m totally into it!”
Some believe the film is shaping up to be a year-defining event, with Diego Perleche believing, “If 2022 had Robert Eggers and Jordan Peele with ‘The Northman’ and ‘Nope,’ this year is Ari Aster’s turn. .. Can’t wait to see how he turns out… with Joaquin Phoenix.” Others, like user Water Hazard, are also excited about Aster’s collaboration with the ‘Joker’ star, saying: “Ari Aster and Joaquin Phoenix sounded like a match made in heaven…”
We’re excited to see how Aster’s latest film fares. As commenter MagikarpUsedFly says, “Ari Aster must be protected at all costs.”
