Junkfood Cinema: Trading Places, Switching Faces

By Brian Salisbury and C. Robert Cargill | Miscellaneous | April 1, 2014 | Comments ()


brian-and-cargill.jpg

In this, well, rather unusual episode of Junkfood Cinema, Cargill and I delve into the backwards, topsy-turvy world of body-swap movies. Whether via a fortune cookie, a birthday wish, or the totally possible act of physically trading faces, these films offer a variety of avenues for transcending one’s given physical form and developing total empathy. Also, you know, Face/Off. Also, not to give too much away, but one of us admits to formerly wearing an earring.

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
