SECONDS (1966)
FILM

Seconds (1966) is a thriller film by John Frankenheimer about an unhappy middle-aged banker who agrees to a procedure that will fake his death and give him a completely new look and identity - one that comes with its own price.

What Karthik says: Seconds (1966) is an unsettling film about a middle-aged man experiencing a mid-life crisis, who has been given an opportunity to completely start his life over with a new identity. This is a beautifully crafted cathartic film about individual emptiness, dissatisfaction and the tragic results of life lived without meaning or values. The film can feel like a lucid nightmare and all the stylistic elements contribute to the sinister and disorienting atmosphere. The main character is played by Rock Hudson who brilliantly embodies a paranoid, distressed man awakening to an unalterable reality. No matter who many skins you wear, you can’t escape who you are on the inside; an omen of our society today. This is a film that’s overlooked by many, but it is a classic in my opinion; a masterpiece by John Frankenheimer.

You might like this if you like: The Twilight Zone (1959-1964), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), The Trial (1962), The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945).
