One of the strangest and most twisted films of the silent era. Cheated and cuckolded, a brilliant scientist (played by Lon Chaney, "the man of a thousand faces") takes refuge behind the make up of a circus clown, where his shame can at least inspire laughter in others. He becomes famous, but his hapless love for a bareback rider sends the movie spinning towards revenge tragedy. This first feature produced by the famous studio MGM, He Who Gets Slapped blends naturalism and expressionism with high melodrama - all accentuated in the Alloy Orchestra’s extraordinary live score.

“A picture which defies one to write about it without indulging in superlatives … so beautifully told, so flawlessly directed that we imagine it will be held up as a model by all producers.” NY Times, 1924

You’ll believe a man can fly… For sky-diving pioneer Carl Boenish, jumping out of airplanes just wasn’t exciting enough. He wanted to jump off tall buildings, bridges and cliffs too - including Yosemite’s mighty El Capitan. Boenish invented BASE jumping, and he filmed it all too. This may be Extreme documentary making, but Carl’s larger than life personality and his oddball marriage touch on emotions as well as adrenaline.

"Exhilarating." Dennis Harvey, Variety

"Immersive enough to induce panic." Ben Kenigsberg, AV Club
