  1. Fabiha's rating of the film The Face of Another

    "The face is just a few dozen square inches above the neck, covered with a layer of dough. I wanted to think so. I told myself a million times it was only a layer of skin, a surface. But now I'm not so sure. The face is the door to the soul. When the face is closed off, so too is the soul. Nobody is allowed inside. The soul is left to rot, reduced to ruins."

  3. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Face of Another

    Interesting concept, surreal enough to hold the imagination. Couple of inventive shots.

  4. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The Face of Another

    Rewatched and re-loved. Aesthetically brilliant. Masterpiece.

  5. letters never sent's rating of the film The Face of Another

    Unusual, thought-provoking, and visually arresting. Brilliant.

  6. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Face of Another

    While it does get points for style, it makes the most important mistake in cinema. Show, don't tell. The doctor keeps insisting that it's the mask that's making him do things. "When the waitress brought the beer, you stared at her legs. That's a sign the mask has started asserting itself." Nonsense. That's why 'Woman in the Dunes' was a masterpiece. Show, don't tell.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The Face of Another

    Un film troublant et fascinant, avec un étonnant dernier quart d'heure où l'onirisme et le désespoir éclatent avec brillance et fulgurance, dans un étrange envoûtement... www.cinefiches.com

  8. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film The Face of Another

    A little clumsy in its surrealism, and an overall lack of subtlety weighs it down, but otherwise great film.

  9. sabrina's rating of the film The Face of Another

    An original of a hitherto exhausted topic. The narrative does not reveal explicit details, which contributes to the psychological suspense for the viewer. This being said, however, the entire film was somewhat predictable. I think my appreciation stems from the use of mise en scene and surrealist elements, rather than the use of plot. The intermittent monologues were cool tho.

  15. Histioteuthis's rating of the film The Face of Another

    This is like amazing and if you love masks and faces and angst about skin and identity like check it out and even if you don't like still check it out because what else would you being doing

  16. Roberto Carlos's rating of the film The Face of Another

    The greatest Cronenberg film

  17. lIZUKA's rating of the film The Face of Another

    It wasn't necessary to drop a traumatic atomic bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima to develop a movie idea, but that worked well too, I guess.

  18. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Face of Another

    definitely one of the better Batman villain origin stories

  19. Rafael Zen's rating of the film The Face of Another

    This film is so beautiful - it's eye candy in every second of it. Teshigahara builds a mesmerizing story that is at the same time very into the 60s futurism and timeless: there's no way you won't identify to this search for the individualities. Layer by layer - visually and emotionally - you will get caught by these pulsating urban society topics.

    "tapi buka dulu toooopengmuu... buka dulu tooooopengmuu"

  21. La quinta luna's rating of the film The Face of Another

  22. Muraki's rating of the film The Face of Another

    i'll give it 4/5, but i think it's overrated by so many viewers.

    My favourite film about identity and the self.
