Film Masks

Despite being a student of film when at college I have never really made a study of masks in film or film masks.

So I began this exercise by making a list of all the films that I could think of that had masks as a central aspect of the film.

By this I mean not films where masks are used as props to disguise and transform as with say Chewy in starwars. But more like Darth Vader where the mask is used by the character for a specific reason.

Masks as make-up I will deal with at some other point.

So here goes. Oh! by the way if you want to add to this feel free to use the box below and add your e-mail.

  • Phantom of the Opera

  • Hannibal Lector films Silence of the Lambs etc.

  • Scream

  • Star Wars: Darth Vader, Storm Troopers and more
