Frederick Bailey

Physiognomy (1973) 16mm, black and white, 6 min

Genre: Experimental

Cathartic insanity. Film is composed basically of one take, surrounded by black and sound, both natural and electronic. Unclothed man peers directly into the lens, contorting his face in various bizarre fashion, to a certain point of breaking through. Performed by the filmmaker. "... existential freak-out... extraordinary tour-de-force" -- Robert Shaw
