The Face of Another

Here’s an outstanding example of Japanese New Wave cinema from the 60s, directed by Hiroshi Teshigahara and based on a novel by Nobel prize winner Kobo Abe. Criterion calls it an “existential science fiction” film. Beyond the themes of identity and subjectivity, this is a great looking cinematic work that benefits from intelligent and original art direction and camera work.
