Eyes Without a Face Reżyseria Georges Franju
Harrowing and disturbing, the film is also well ahead of its time in terms of its visual effects—especially in its surgery sequences, which are excruciatingly convincing even today.

A welter of ineffable effects (the languid slouch of the lifeless figure in the backseat of a car, a visit to the cemetery interrupted by the soft whoosh of an airplane, a placid fireplace suddenly inflamed by a chloroformed rag) comprises Franju’s tessitura of cruelty and lyricism, a camera that can gaze at a gruesome face transplant with something like nightmarish serenity.

Franju doesn’t set out to transcend the genre, but instead to eliminate its usual stupidities and to heighten its typical moods. Hence the scenes which make it clear that both Genessier and Louise are weighed down by the burden of their inhuman work, and hence, too, the climactic equation of madness with liberation. Probably not a masterpiece in the broader scheme of things but indisputably a genre classic, and as resonant and disquieting as it was 55 years ago.
