eyes_without_a_face_1Usually, I’m really not into fan edits because, but this one got my attention immediately. Edited by Cat From Japan, the clip is Georges Franju’s Eyes Without A Face (Les Yeux Sans Visage) edited down to four-minutes and set to Portishead’s “Hunter”. It’s a highly potent mix, set elegantly to the music with haunting perfection and actually heightening the tragedy of Franju’s film in such a short period of time.

This is the best kind of tribute, amplifying what made the film so great by an understated reinvention at the source material.

Hot tip: Please don’t watch this if you haven’t seen the film, hunt it out first, then come back to this!
