A staggering work of existential science fiction, The Face of Another dissects identity with the sure hand of a surgeon. Okuyama, after being burned and disfigured in an industrial accident and estranged from his family and friends, agrees to his psychiatrist’s radical experiment: a face transplant, created from the mold of a stranger. As Okuyama is thus further alienated from the world around him, he finds himself giving in to his darker temptations.
(Hiroshi Teshigahara, Japan, Japanese & German w/Eng. Sub., 124 min, 1966, 35mm)
