Man Facing Southeast (1986)

FilmDallas Pictures
Directed by Eliseo Subiela
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
(VHS, New World Video)

A mysterious man shows up at a mental hospital and claims to be from another planet. His skeptical doctor gradually comes to suspect that he might be telling the truth. The other patients believe he is the second coming of Christ. A woman who comes to visit him one day turns out to be from the same place. Cerebral, murky drama is an uneven mixture of psychiatry, theology and science fiction, but works due to intelligent script and sympathetic characters.
