Actor, comedian, and intellectual extraordinaire John Cleese takes on the task to unlock just what secrets are hiding in the unique mask of a person's face. Part One focuses on cultural identity and gender as Cleese shows looks into family resemblances and the purpose a face can have in telling of a person's history. Part Two centers on fame and the iconic looks of Princess Diana, Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe, and Cleopatra. What is it about the face and its beauty that allows it to sell products? Part Three delves into the question of beauty and its affect it has on people's interactions. What is the unconscious perception of big eyes, smooth skin, and symmetrical features? Part Four digs into the idea of micro expressions and the face's ability to communicate beyond words. With twitches, quirks, and immediate facial reactions, the face holds a number of expressions and all it takes is knowing how to read them.moreless

    The Man Who Lost His Face is a documentary special from TLC that introduces viewers to the shocking and mysterious plight of Jose Mestre, a man who has been stricken with a terrible facial tumor that threatens to completely block his vision and prevent him from eating or breathing unless he can find a surgeon capable of removing and reconstructing Jose's face. This one-hour special follows Jose and his sister Edith as they travel from Portugal to Chicago, a relatively short trip that's nonetheless harrowing for someone in Jose's condition. They can only hope the trip will be worth the effort. In Chicago, a plastic surgeon named Dr. McKay McKinnon who's known for being able to do the impossible will find out if Jose has any chance for removing the facial growth and living a normal life. Dr. McKinnon is a talented surgeon with an impressive track record, but it will take an operation of extraordinary precision to give Jose his face back.moreless
