One of the commune guys is bitten by a shark, and when his anguished screams disturb the island idyll of the others, Sal simply has him moved out of earshot.
This event suggests the makings of another, darker movie, but it's not allowed to pay off or lead to anything big.
Maybe that's because the whole film is seen so resolutely through Richard's eyes, and the movie doesn't want to insult its target demographic group or dilute DiCaprio's stardom by showing the character as the twit that he is.
In a smarter film, Richard would have been revealed as a narcissistic kid out of his depth, and maybe he would have ended up out in the woods where his screams couldn't be heard.

What is most immediately jarring to anyone who has read the book is the decision to make Richard an American instead of a Brit. With Richard as an American, we Canadians are deprived of a well-needed slap in the face: In the film, Sammy and Zeph are our stereotypical, arrogant American surf dudes.
Still, the most important thing about Richard, Zeph and Sammy is intact. They are not the only things that lead to the end of paradise, but they are a symbol for all that shows us that paradise is not possible.
They are Americans and they are a plague. In fact, the film is telling us that we all are, but for some it may be easier to keep the blame centered on our favourite target.
The Beach is not an anti-American film. It is an anti-Consumerism film. And we are all targets. As Richard's time on the beach passes, he finds something again.
The only thing he ever finds - he finds twice. Daffy begins to appear to Richard in the latter part of the film. Daffy knows why he left the beach and he tells Richard.
He doesn't tell us. But we soon understand. Perhaps the most common complaint I've heard about The Beach includes some comment on the studio system and how it destroys the independent genius of someone like Danny Boyle.
Maybe it does. It's possible that Boyle consented. It's possible that he subverted the whole process. On the recommendation of a friend, I went to see The Beach for a second time and what I saw was brave.
He sprung the trap on us. Michael Carruthers 6 April Intense and interesting, but contains it's share of flaws. On a rating scale of 0 to ; I gave The Beach a score of Many people have stopped themselves from seeing The Beach because of bad reviews from critics and the story of the crew wrecking an entire island to make the movie.
One of those things, in my book, is a fact. They did wreck an island, and for pure entertainment, it's not worth it. Still, the bad reviews from the critics I disagree with, I found this quite a little gem, and if you agree with some of my other reviews, I recommend you don't hesitate when you see The Beach sitting on the drama shelf of your video store.
The wonders of modern technology, like computers, video games, cell phones, pagers and the internet, were designed to make our lives more enjoyable and facilitate communications.
Travel, he asserts, is the search for experience, the quest for something different. Richard and two friends Virginie Ledoyen and Guillaume Canet he meets in Thailand risk their lives travelling secret that is dubbed the beach resort for those who don't like beach resorts.
At their destination, Richard and friends are welcomed into a community that lives on the beach. However, they soon discover that beneath this surface, this heaven on earth is less than perfect.
Leonardo DiCaprio declared he was not anti-Titanic when he did this film. And he isn't. DiCaprio shows on his face how successful he is when he did the film, and he is a show-off.
But, darn it all, DiCaprio is good because we know he has the potential. He went a long length to do this movie, even director's favourite Ewan McGregor was passed over for DiCaprio, and rightfully so.
I just can't picture anyone else playing the role. The acting hotline is also boiling with such talents as Tilda Swinton, Virginie Ledoyen and the masterful Robert Carlyle.
Danny Boyle's direction is solid and he paces the film nicely, and the script is adapted well from Alex Garland's better-than-movie book.
Still, The Beach is a film that is ripe for discussion. It features alluring scenery from the small island of Phuket, it has some striking visuals and an absorbing and intense message about finding your own paradise.
It's not the best film of , but The Beach remains a worthy attempt. Danny Boyle did an exquisite job on this film. When I first learned that it was indeed a Danny Boyle film I was a bit disappointed that it didn't have any of his "original" cast members When I learned that Robert Carlyle was in this, I was ecstatic.
This film has so many wonderful points, I can't list them all. I'm just going to say that "enjoy your dinner Richard" was a classic cinematic moment.
A great thing about this film is that it's a wonderful representation of a microcosm of todays society. It shows that no matter how hard you try to escape all the wrongs in life, and all of your daily annoyances, they'll still be there no matter where you escape to.
This film doesn't go from beginning to end. It circles. There is no ending because their lives didn't end. Truly a supreme film.
It is what one should expect from a man like Danny Boyle. Leonardo DiCaprio gives another amazing performance. It takes a wonderful actor to be able to portray an emotion such as insanity just with his eyes, and he did so wonderfully!
I'll be brief. I didn't want to watch 'The Beach' because of the bad reviews, but when I accidentally came across it while surfing through the channels, I couldn't stop watching.
If you're young and have a thing for interesting stories, you'll love this one. Dockelektro 1 February Like the many times referenced "Apocalypse Now", this one could really reach the status of cult movie among the nature lovers and hippy heirs.
The movie its all the perfect spots during the first half. The beach, the people, the rhythm, the actors, the music They even sing Bob Marley by the fire.
But the film's second half is strange, erratic, scattered, it leaves the awe-inspiring journey sense and centers in a strange and sudden "mood" by DiCaprio's Richard.
This is where the letdown is fully, although the ending doesn't feel disappointing. As for the cult movie potential, I think the next generations must judge it, but it has a great deal of bitterness to it and if two years later the film isn't a "word of mouth" phenomenon, maybe it won't have such a cult afterall.
Anyway, I thought it was a great work by the scottish team of "Trainspotting", the script is an asset, and I say it again, DiCaprio is not just a pretty face.
Recomend it to all people from 18 up. Live it and think about it. I sure liked it anyway Well - Where do I start It would take a long time to pick my way through the debris of this particular shambles so I shall narrow it down to what I see as the main critical flaws that sank Leo's latest water borne epic 1.
The movie has been aimed squarely at a teen market hence you get style over content - The beautiful people in paradise hanging out with a highly commercial soundtrack and a Top Shop tie in on the fashion side 2.
The removal of the deep cynicism evident in Garlands novel - Read the book - you will find it very hard to find a sympathetic character.
Richards Leo fascination with the whole 'Nam pop culture - this is throw in as an afterthought in the last 25 minutes of the film apart from a fleeting glimpse of Apocalypse Now in the opening reel and falls completely flat - what we get is comical check out Leo as he does his best Cat.
Willard impressions - hilarious! The love interest. Okay - this I can understand purely for its commercial reasons - it has a bums on seats factor.
But it damages a vital part of the book - Richard never gets it together with Francois let alone Sal hence there is an unspoken tension in the air which adds to Richards isolation and his descent into 'Nam paranoia.
If you want the real experience read the book - if you want a very cheap facsimile go see Leo and the gang Entertaining in parts, but as a whole it's pure manure.
This movie is generally about the sociopath Richard DiCaprio ,in his elitist pursuit of pleasure, sex and holiday paradise. He goes to great length in pursuing this, using lies, deceit and violence to get what he wants.
He gets to know about a secluded Thai beach, and makes friends with a french guy and his girlfriend in order to steal the girlfriend from the guy..
The trio finds their "paradise" on an island that's part occupied by some armed and crazy Thai marijuana farmers, and the other part; a crazy hippie collective.
The hippie commune, is still a slave to consumerism society, and not the alternative society that it is set out to be. Just like Richard, the members of the community goes to great length in defending their right to "fun" and "pleasure", taking a blind fold to the ones that get hurt and killed in their pursuit.
The goal of the commune is elitist and fascist, the means of using violence is motivated by keeping out other tourists and people the commune doesn't want out of this beach-resort.
Richard makes everything he can to do the same things. He is everything that goes bad with the commune inpersonated.. He's not able to feel any empathy or understanding for anyone, the only time he openly questions the fascism of the commune is when his own life is on the line in order to save it.
In other cases he walks away, and still "feels good being in paradise". Well the movies meaning wasn't supposed to be about this.
The director somehow thought that we should see any kind of sympathy and actually care about what happens to Richard, and forgive him for his actions, instead he is the only guy in this movie that is actually disgustingly inhumane.
Maybe he thought we should have been blazed by the star quality of Di Caprio. But truthfully, He is nothing more than a stupid parody of idiotic travellers who think they can behave anyhow they like in any foreign exotic location.
The unintentional satire is exaggerating this, making him a total psychopath. He is not just a someone who quietly takes orders, the nazi-like leader of the commune; Sal is his peer.
The same person, but with power. DiCaprios character is somebody you would want the director to have shot off early in the movie.
Even if it was the meaning of the director to show DiCaprio as a total a-hole, this a-hole definitely isn't good company for the two hours.
This is not the only bad thing about the movie. It's slow scenes, extremely bad computer animations and the horribly outdated brit-pop soundtrack makes it an equally painful experience to watch.
The movies ending is nothing but Richard being nostalgic about his beach adventures in his normal-life setting, not having learned any lesson or gained any emotional strength.
The viewer is also encouraged to join his nostalgia for his blood stained paradise. Why go to such great lengths anyway to get away from the mass tourists?
Go to the Philipines or any place that isn't as crowded as Thailand. Stupid movie. I'd say Danny Boyle has done complete justification to the book.
The movie captures the essence of the book. I watched the movie first and then read the book. The beach can be better experienced thru the movie.
The music by Angelo Badalamenti is excellent, but unfortunately not popular which is why I believe popular is not always the best ;-.
DiCaprio proves how versatile and powerful he is as an actor. A must watch for DiCaprio fans. Purchase an original DVD and you'll get to see alternate beginning and alternate climax of the movie with director's comments.
You will like this movie especially if you are a crazy traveler and like to explore unseen and untouched places. Direction, location, music and DiCaprio are the strengths of the movie.
Just keep your mind open and suck in the experienceMay 11, Rating: 2. A Life Less Ordinary The film goes all over the place and in the end barely saves itself. An error has occured.
