Beau is Afraid (out Apr 20) is a 3-hour epic from director Ari Aster (Hereditary) about a middle aged man (Joaquin Phoenix) with stress and mummy issues. This is bold and ambitious... and frustrating. Scenes drag on far too long and while I appreciate its open-to-interpretation nature, it's a long slog. Grade: C+.
