In French, the title of this month's movie is Les yeux sans visage, but we hear in the English-speaking world call it Rebel Yell. Sorry, wrong Billy Idol song. It's actually Eyes Without a Face, the moody and creepy 1960 film by Georges Franju, concerning a surgeon who will go to any lengths to replace his disfigured daughter's face, however until he does, the daughter is stuck at home wearing a form-fitting featureless mask. Did we mention it's creepy? Erik, Kyle, and Sean delve into the film's German expressionist and Italian Neo-Realist tendencies as well as its incredibly graphic surgical scenes. And caliope music, too.
