Synopses
The Human Face (2001)
The human face is what attracts and repels humans meeting other humans. This process is mysterious. This four-volume program from The Learning Channel investigates many aspects of the human face, from beauty to facial expression. John Cleese acts as narrator and host to a number of guests who discuss the power of the face. Skits and personal interviews highlight the points made in the production. The four episodes include Secrets of the Face, The Endlessly Fascinating Face, Does Beauty Matter?, and Famous Faces. This episode examines reading a face and its expressions and what one can learn about its owner. Case studies in stereotyping, victimization, and fame illustrate the importance of the face on the daily lives of humans. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, All Movie Guide

Very Good by AOsher April 27, 2008 - 6:04 PM PDT

John Cleese is always an interesting man. However, the episodes are a bit to long.

Bonus Disc only by LMcGuff April 27, 2008 - 3:03 PM PDT

Disc 2 is bonus features. These include an extended introduction by John Cleese, "mirror interviews" with some of the people used in the crowd shot of interesting faces, and unedited interviews with Candice Bergen, Pierce Brosnan, and some of the experts consulted on the show.

The mirror interviews were most interesting to me. The subjects included an Elizabeth Taylor look-a-like, a Malian teenager, a man whose face was heavily tattooed, and a man who plays bikers in the movies.

The four shows on the main disc were very intriguing, and we were disappointed that that's all there was.
