Freaks Regizat de Tod Browning

Recenzii ale criticilor

The M-G-M films play like a striver’s gangly conception of sophistication. The exception that proves the rule is Tod Browning’s FREAKS, a masterpiece that draws blood and convulses with orgasmic transference… It has nothing to blunt its rough edges; it goes down like wood alcohol. It is also, of course, one of the most compassionate and empathetic films ever made, unsullied even by the sub-distribution efforts of exploitation maven Dwain Esper.

What’s most shocking about the film is not seeing the “freaks,” but just how mundanely, even warmly, the film dares to treat their lives; the violent revenge narrative feels just like what it is—a silly mechanism to provide a showcase for their considerable talents.

The maintenance (however difficult) of the normal/abnormal couplet guarantees an order in which the various elements can be recognised, classed, mastered – in short, named. Here we see the extraordinary enterprise of blurring which Freaks methodically carries out, creating the most freakish trouble imaginable: the fusion of normal and abnormal, and the simultaneous perversion of natural law, moral law, and language.
