Like LOS OJOS, GLASS FACE shows off Beydler's more whimsical side, but his consistently fresh approach to the transformation of still frames into motion pictures is nevertheless on its usual breathtaking display here. This time, the material being animated is the filmmaker's own face, resulting in a truly strange and funny example of self-punishment as self-portraiture. -- Mark Toscano

Filmmaker Gary Beydler transforms still frames into motion pictures. In GLASS FACE, it’s his own face as the subject matter, which he has amusingly manipulated the features with the assistance of a glass plate.
