DVD review: ‘Beyond the Reach’ ★★

The division between deranged villainy and complete buffoonery is a fine one. As bloodthirsty, silver-tongued businessman John Madec in French director Jean-Baptiste Léonetti’s Beyond the Reach (2014), Michael Douglas tramples all over the line drawn in the Mojave desert sand as a maniacal caricature of Gordon Gekko toting a high-calibre Austrian rifle. Based on the 1972 novel Deathwatch by Robb White, Léonetti’s film could have occurred any time since and in any barren, unforgiving landscape.
