Automan

Automan

A blending of physical erotic beauty with a tension created by the careful placement of nude figures within the film frame and in combination with the abrupt addition of a fully clothed 'middle aged' couple about midway through the piece. As is usual in a James Herbert work, the film is intuitively made, visually breathtaking, and offered to the viewer in a way that creates an ineffable direct line between maker and audience.
