Ain't got no human grace

Couple nights ago I watched Eyes Without a Face (1960, dir. Georges Franju). A suspense/thriller about a plastic surgeon so racked with guilt by his part in disfiguring his daughter's face that he goes to drastic measures to save her. Unwatchable at times and very eerie. Edith Scob as the disfigured Christiane is ethereal and horrible at the same time. Very subtle movie - I wouldn't recommend if you want lots of blood, gore or screaming.
