DIABOLIQUE & EYES WITHOUT A FACE

"The morbid fascination starts building before the picture is ten minutes gone. By the time it is rolling toward a climax it is spreading the most delicious chills. It is a pip of a murder thriller, ghost story and character play rolled into one."
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“Cruel, sour, and – unfortunately – very effective.”
– David Kehr

 
DIABOLIQUE & EYES WITHOUT A FACE

EYES WITHOUT A FACE

(1960, Georges Franju) The ethereal Edith Scob, in a simultaneously beautiful and creepy mask, floats through operating room and dog kennel as doves fly past. A surgeon lectures on the “heterograft.” But who’s that face-down on her bed on the top floor of the doctor’s house? Approx. 84 min. 35mm.
3:40, 7:35

“An incredible amalgam of horror and fairytale…
Illuminated throughout by Franju's unique sense of poetry,
it's a marvellous movie in the fullest sense.”

– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)

“Perhaps the most elegant horror movie ever made.”
– Pauline Kael
