  • Human Experiments

    Human Experiments 1979

    ★★½ Watched 24 Aug, 2015

    A strange blend of women in prison film meets psychological shocker, Human Experiments doesn't delve into either of the aforementioned subjects as well or as thoroughly as other fare from around same period and instead decides to tread a tepid line between the two.

    Linda Haynes gives a little lift to the proceedings as the wrongly imprisoned 'victim' who is subjected to torture and brainwashing at the hands of Geoffrey Lewis, himself portraying the unbalanced asylum doctor.

    A curiosity for sure, but there isn't much here that you won't have seen before... except perhaps some entomological related shootings and light mashed potato torture.

  • The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes

    The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes 1971

    ★★★★½ Watched 05 Aug, 2015

    We are all just pieces of meat awaiting our turn on the slab.

    The cold, clinical and emotionally absent clashes with an understated but poignant beauty in Brakhage's depiction of the human body after death via autopsy.

    The silence in which the procedures occur deafens more than any soundtrack ever could.

    Before they added all the slo-mo, this was apparently a 6 minute music video.
