Shock Treatment 10/31/20

Severin Films

French filmmaker Alain Jessua comes up with a commercial thriller with a science-fiction, medical horror twist. Alain Delon and Annie Girardot don’t shy away from some matter-of-fact nude scenes, that serve a legit dramatic purpose. Outside France the sex content was almost the only angle exploited. Beneath the glamour and intrigues at a chic rejuvenation clinic is an unflinching statement about the abusive entitlements of the wealthy. But don’t worry, being rich means never having to say you’re sorry. In a beautiful restored transfer with full language choices. On Blu-ray from Severin Films.
