In his 1986 autobiography, Rock Hudson: His Story, written with Sarah Davidson, Hudson says Seconds is his best work and describes it as "Controversial as hell — a horror film that is bizarre . . . frightening. I play a sixty-year-old man, a 'reborn.' I've had a facelift, and there's a before and after, and for most of the picture I'm the 'after.' At the Cannes Film Festival they compared it to the Faust story."
Seconds is bleak, unsettling, claustrophobic, a complex and riveting film about alienation and the limits of science, and it's as much of our time as it is of its own.
