Tarsem Singh's creative project "Beyond Yourself". Reviews of film critics and the audience

His flawless ability to work with texture and color, create colorful paintings on the verge of surrealism definitely deserves attention and admiration. For the director, the main component of each tape is sound and color, brought to psychedelic and frenzied impeccability, and the plot is always on the second plan.
