Tod Browning United States, 1932

smndvdcl's rating of the film Freaks

Arguably, the best pre-Code film around. Still shocks now. The discrimination of those with body deformities is brought to the fore by a circus ensemble who exploits society's wrongfully ridiculed outsiders. Their pursuit for dignity is a fully immersive ride. A film that is equally discomforting and affirming.
