simple, early actuality with a weird side
10 August 2018 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

A freak show performance caught on camera in 1900. A largely limbless man, mainly functioning with the small bit of his right arm/shoulder that he was born having, does various little actions in a rather impressive way. The short may be a bit exploitive, but it is enjoyable and interesting just to see how one born in such a way may function. Others may find it creepy, I just found it a little weird, but in a very good way that anticipates Tod Browning's classic horror drama 'Freaks', one of my all time favourite films. Freak shows themselves obviously have some immoral aspect to them, but this whole performance is likably lighthearted and just an interesting display of talent if anything.
