Movie Info

The Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes is an experimental short film directed by Stan Brakhage in 1971. It consists entirely of graphic footage from actual autopsies. The camera captures, close-up, the corpses of a man and woman in a Pittsburgh morgue. There is no narration. The film is collected on the Brakhage anthology collection from Criterion, although it's separated from the rest of the films due to its extremely graphic nature. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes

All Critics (1)

In adding a literal deconstruction of man to the metaphorical one that graces so many works of art, Brakhage has created with Act the ultimate horror film, for better or worse.
