Paul and Erin review two movies featuring characters who spend most of the film wearing an iconic mask. First: EYES WITHOUT A FACE, Georges Franju's shocking yet poetic 1960 horror classic about a surgeon whose attempts to perform a face transplant on his disfigured daughter leave a trail of corpses in their wake; then, THE MASK, the 1994 special-effects comedy starring Jim Carrey as a meek bank teller who transforms into a zoot-suited wildman under the influence of a magical ancient Norwegian mask. Immobile white mask or rubberfaced green mask: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on season four of JUSTIFIED, WHITE HOUSE DOWN, CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER, GREENBERG, RUBY SPARKS, and SAVE THE DATE. And lots of love for Paul Feig.
