The Body 1971
X | 1h 52min | Documentary | 15 January 1971 (Japan)
A scientific documentary combining narration from anatomical experts and human biologists with interior and exterior camera shots examining the human body, along with a soundtrack using the human body as a medium.
After years of listening to the odd soundtrack, I finally tracked the film down. It’s a combination documentary/art film that is surprisingly interesting. The odd film score (composed by Roger Waters and Ron Geesin) makes much more sense, as it’s set to the action of the film. Worth seeing if you like odd films, and you’re able to track down a decent copy.
