X - The Man With The X-Ray Eyes
X - The Man With The X-Ray Eyes
"Only the gods see everything," cautions one scientist as Dr. James Xavier (Ray Milland) experiments with a formula that will allow the human eye to see beyond the wavelength of visible light. "I am closing in on the gods," he responds with the hubris that is doomed to destroy his overreaching ambition. A mix of Greek tragedy and sci-fi potboiler, Roger Corman's X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes (simply identified as X in the eerie, odd opening credits) is a familiar tale of a scientist who risks everything to explore the unknown and is finally driven mad by, literally, seeing too much. Peeping through the clothes of comely women is all good adolescent fun until the gift becomes a nightmare as his sight rages out of control. The possibilities suggested in the hints of addiction and inconsistent bouts of megalomania remain tantalizingly unexplored in the unfocused script, and Corman's cut-rate special effects are often more hokey than haunting (the "city dissolved in an acid of light" that Xavier poetically describes becomes fuzzy photography through a series of color filters). Don Rickles offers a venal turn as a scheming carnival barker turned blackmailing con man, and Diana Van der Vlis is understanding as a sympathetic scientist who tries to rescue Xavier from his spiral into tortured madness, but in the tradition of Greek tragedy, he is doomed to be destroyed by the very gifts he desires.
MGM's widescreen disc also features commentary by director-producer Corman. --Sean Axmaker

I think the only two words in the english language that begin with X are X-ray and Xylophone. I opted for X-ray because my son doesn't actually have a xylophone like Gooner's kids. They're so lucky! Yea me! I've actually made it to day 50 which is quite a surprise to me. So far so good (I think). For Feb. Alphabet Fun: X TOTW: Gratitude. Not to sound superficial or materialistic, but I really am grateful for these sunglasses. I have a love/hate relationship with the sun. My eyes are very sensitive (Wah, I know!) And I'm also grateful for my brother who hooked me up with an awesome deal on these specs. No FGR or Rogue Players today :( Today's Random Fact: This isn't actually an x-ray of my hand. In reality I had a boxers fracture in the knuckle of my pinky finger. I'm kinda missing that knuckle as a result of a split second of stupid.

China: Urban Healthcare
A man who wishes not to be identified visits a park in Shanghai where cancer patients come to do morning excercises and offer support to each other. Health care in urban China varies drastically. Those who can afford it can find some of the best treatment in the world, while those who can not afford it are left financially crippled by inadequate insurance policies. Rural health care is at least a decade or more behind.

X-Ray: See Through the World Around You
A beautiful and utterly mesmerizing view of everyday objects.

Using security scanners and x-ray machines, Nick Veasey creates beautiful, unsettling, inside-out images that reveal—like never before—the intricacy of everyday objects, animals, and plants. Whether the spectacle of an x-rayed Boeing 777, the elaborate geometry of an mp3 player’s circuit boards, or the ethereal grace of a translucent daffodil, each page of this book is an absorbing work of art.

In a security-obsessed age, Veasey’s work is subtly subversive, as it uses sophisticated technology to discover inner beauty rather than concealed dangers.

Veasey captures the x-ray images on film in a lead-lined studio. (He works on the outside of the studio when the machines are operating.) Once the x-ray has been exposed, it is scanned at ultrahigh resolution, using special equipment tailored for the process. These digital images are then composed and embellished on a computer. The whole process can take weeks or even months—but the results speak for themselves.
