Brief thoughts on The Faceless Man (2017)

A man wakes up one morning and find that he isn't himself. No his face has turned into a mirror and it reflects the world around him.

Jeremy Foley's THE FACELESS MAN is a lovely little fable that is an  exploration of how we see ourselves and how the world sees us. Are we looking to see others or merely a reflection of ourselves? This is a film that is going to give you a great deal to chew on.

Watching the film I was slightly distanced to start. The mirrored face looked a bit odd (it's a brilliant piece of practical effects make up) but as the film got going I stopped thinking about it and just went with the film (Though I did keep trying to see if we could see the camera or crew reflected in the mirror.) By the end I was smiling and kind of in love with the film to the point I mentioned it to several friends who are film writers in the hope they would cover it as well.

THE FACELESS MAN  is an awesome little film and highly recommended.
