Review: Georges Franju's "Eyes Without A Face" ("Les yeaux sans visage") (1960), French Horror Classic From Criterion

20 April 2014 3:59 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Criterion has released a true oddity: a French horror film from 1960 by director Georges Franju titled Eyes Without a Face. The B&W film was notable in its day for being a rare excursion into a genre that most New Wave French filmmakers had studiously avoided. The intriguing plot centers on Dr. Genessier (Pierre Brasseur), a notable plastic surgeon who is pioneering breakthrough methods of reconstructing the faces of people who have suffered grievous injuries and disfigurements. On the surface, Genessier follows the norms of traditional medical research: publishing papers and giving lectures relating to his findings. However, the painstaking process of getting formal acceptance and  approval of new medical theories is not for him. He has an urgent need to pursue his theories outside of accepted medical practices.

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Judex

25 March 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Dates: June 17, 2014

Price: DVD $24.95, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

A criminal masquerade is perpetrated in Judex.

This 1963 effortlessly cool French crime caper film Judex, directed by Georges Franju (Eyes Without a Face), is a marvel of dexterous plotting and visual invention.

Conceived as an homage to Louis Feuillade’s 1916 cult silent serial of the same name, Judex kicks off with the mysterious kidnapping of a corrupt banker (Michel Vitold) by the shadowy crime fighter Judex (American magician Channing Pollock) and spins out into a thrillingly complex web of deceptions.

Combining stylish Sixties modernism with silent-cinema touches and even a few unexpected sci-fi accents, Judex is a delightful bit of pulp fiction and a testament to the art of illusion.

Criterion’s Blu-ray/DVD Combo and DVD standalone editions of the movie include the following features:

• New 2K digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray »

I just received my review copy of Ingmar Bergman's Pesona (3/25) today so I'm a little high on Criterion love at the moment and only minutes after receiving that in the mail I received today's announcement listing the films coming to the Collection in June. I'm sure many will be excited to see Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock getting the Blu-ray upgrade. The remastered release includes a new piece on the making of the film, a new introduction by film scholar David Thomson as well as Weir's 1971 black comedy Homesdale among other additional features. The disc will hit shelves on June 17. The title I'm most looking forward to is Michelangelo Antonioni's L'eclisse the third film in his informal trilogy that includes L'avventura and La notte. This is the only one of those three I haven't yet seen and what a cast as it tells the story of »

Odd List Sarah Dobbs 31 Jan 2014 - 07:00

Any good horror movie villain needs a mask. Sarah counts down 20 of the most frightening face-hiders in the movies...

Ever since Michael Myers went on a killing spree in his Halloween costume, masks have been a staple of slasher movies.

Sometimes they serve to hide the killer’s identity, while other times they conceal a disfigured face, and other times, well, probably the production team just thought it’d look cool. Usually, the idea is that it’s what lurks underneath the mask that’s scary, but a good horror movie mask is frightening in its own right.

Here, then, are 20 of the scariest masks ever to turn up in a horror movie:

There’s so much going on in the Saw movies that this mask is far from the »
