Not Rated | | Drama, Sci-Fi
A businessman with a disfigured face obtains a lifelike mask from his doctor, but the mask starts altering his personality.
During its initial release, the film was generally poorly received by critics in Japan and the United States. It also received an extremely limited release in the United States and remained unseen by American audiences for many decades. Modern film critics have warmed to the film and its merits, and now consider it a major example of the quality of Japanese films from the 1960s.
You're not the only lonely man. Being free always involves being lonely. Just there is a mask you can peel off and another you can not.
